Hot curry powder! The last two nights I let dh help me cook and he opted for hot curry instead of regular in our meals (chickpea hash and curried venison). I was stuffed after one portion. The curry makes me slow down and drink lots of water between bites. But oh so yummy!

I LOVE curry! I've alctually been upping the spice on my meals lately too. SO and I recently went out to eat for sushi and I ordered 911 rolls. The meal only came with 6 rolls, but because I was drinking so much water I was soooo full after that meal.

This is the chickpea hash.

Sorry I'm mobile can't make it clicky

Curried venison is his invention and its never the same twice but it's basically venison pan fried in a little olive oil with curry, ginger, onion and peppers tossed in.
