Food for Friday – Sweet Potato and Shrimp Curry (Recipe)
We’ve made so many things in our slow cooker! In fact, I’ve even been trying a few new tricks. So far, I’ve made steel cut oats (better reheated), hard boiled eggs, the pulled pork, a chicken stew, ‘baked’ potatoes, today’s curry. I’m starting to really feel the love for my slow cooker. I mean, I always knew that it could be relied on for a good soup or a chili, but I’m seriously exploring some fantastic options now.
And you know, the recommendation is to transfer to a serving bowl, garnish, and then serve with rice is seriously optional. In our case, that meant everyone was lucky to get a a bowl and a spoon with reheated rice already in it and I used a mug to scoop curry on top. We also ate while sitting on the floor. So much creativity when you don’t have a kitchen!
