Do you make your own curry? I know it is tasty, but have no idea how they make it so tasty. Do you have a recipe, or do you buy it at the store?
I make my own curry ( Indian, Thai and even Japanese )
I don't buy anything premade at the store and we almost never go out to eat....

I have recipes typed up but they are on a different computer, will post for you when I get a chance

ok here is my Thai recipe I use:

and I guess I do buy premade red curry paste ( Thai kitchen brand, they sell it pretty much any grocery store)

1 can coconut milk
3 tbps ( half a jar of this) red curry paste
3 tbsp fish sauce
some hot sauce ( the curry paste is not hot enough)
a little salt
basil ( dry or fresh) , about a tbsp dry

put this in a large pan and heat up on low heat

add thinly sliced chicken breast
cook until chicken is not pink
add one chopped red pepper
add one can of bamboo shoots
add one can of pineapple
 
What do you stuff in your grape leaves??
rice, ground goat ( or lamb but daughter doesn't like lamb) onion, garlic, a few tomatoes chopped, that's it , fresh leaves from the grapevine outside
I cook the rice and meat and stuff them, then put them in a casserole dish with some white cooking wine and some lemon slices on top , they go in the oven with something heavy on top, usually use a heavy skillet on top of some parchment paper

Thank you, that sounds really good!!
 
week 3 day 6

sweet and sour red cabbage, schnitzel and potatoes , daughter loves German food, so that is what she is getting
Funny thing, granddaughter loves ALL food. My daughter hated all food when she was a baby and kid growing up. She lived on chocolate milk and pancakes practically. She is still picky and allergic to chicken protein from all things but she eats way more food now. I think the Navy cured her of being completely picky.
 
week 3 day 7
of course with visitors and desserts every day I am sure I did not lose any weight, so I will weight until next week to weight myself again....

Today I am making Phad Thai. Hope daughter will like it. She is generally not that fond of Asian food or spicy food, but I will make it not spicy and the rest of us can add hot sauce
It's a little difficult for me to cook for her. She mostly eats beef and I don't eat that much at all, and don't have any here right now ( we do not have cattle) . So we will see how she likes today's vegetarian meal ....
Will also make banana pudding, everyone likes that
 
week 4 day 2

I hope I have time for this after shopping but planning on stuffed zuccine and smashed potatoes

going to make 1 dessert a week this month, asked husband and son for 4 each and picked the top ones I want to make: better than sex cake ( yes that is what it is called, basically walnut pie crust in bottom, layer of cream cheese and cool whip, layer of chocolate pudding and then more cool whip) , homemade snickers bars, chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon roll bread ( never bring any home from the market)
 
week 4 day 3

today I am going to make kimchi stew with rice

had some watermelon and a piece of bread ( good bread left from market) yesterday evening

Warned son I am going to make zuccini pizza at least once this summer. It has them in the crust and son does not particularly like it, but husband did so son will have to live with it. If both hated it, I would probably not make it
 
week 4 day 5

I think I am going to make Mexican today, the corn tortilla enchiladas with green chilies and veggies, plus cheese of course.

I want to make the stuffed grapeleaves again soon too, photo attached stuffed leaves.jpg

no you eat the whole thing, mine are sort of large so you can cut them in half first. You put greek yogurt and cucumber sauce on them. They are not hard to make if you have grape vines and the leaves look good. Fall the leaves get tough so I need to make them again soon. You can buy them in stores sometimes but I haven't seen any around here
