It was only a matter of time before the weather had an impact on Tonight's Menu, I live in Britain after all. Mum was leaving today, back to Edinburgh, after a week long visit. The rail link between the two cities is usually reliable but, like her arrival, the wind was going to have a say in her departure. All trains between England and Scotland were cancelled and Mum was staying for another night.
Z and I had already decided what we were going to have for our first meal for two in over a week but that wouldn't stretch to three people so we had to rethink. We also hadn't done a "big shop" so the cupboards were relatively bare.
We found mince in the freezer, a good start, but what to cook. We'd had lasagne the other night so Spag boll was out the window. The discovery of a packet of chapattis sealed the deal, curry it was. Onions, garlic, mince, spices and a tin of tomatoes made the basic sauce. Potatoes, peas and spring onions were added for bulk and freshness. Rice #3 (basmati) was rolled out for this one.
