Every couple of years the girls head off to a conference. Cue making a big pot of two bean Chile for one. Dinner, next day ~ breakfast (on toast), lunch and dinner again. With liberal lashings of Kaitaia Fire (it's a sauce, Google it). Kinda like Valhalla but with a lip smacking cool farting aftertaste.

That’s nothing. You should try teaching a 5 year old about double dipping.

Currently on a cruise ship and I have eaten everything discussed in this thread in the last 10 days.

Will have 3 types of pasta today before dinner.

A simple recipe is Rice with Kerry. What you need is about 100grams of rice p.p. which you boil, a pound of ground beef, pork or mix and two big onions (to be chopped). Stirfry the meat and the chopped onions and serve with a warmed up curry sauce.

Goat curry is my one (as people refuse to acknowledge how good it is in curry). Dal makhani also makes the list because people in my house turn their nose up at lentils.
