Hungry Recipe - Massaman Curry & February Photo-A-Day - Day 9 - Front Door

Well... this is my front door... nothing exciting about it. I have Milly on the other side, she was begging to be let free the whole time.

On a more exciting note (for me anyway). I made Massaman Beef Curry for dinner tonight. Yum!
Although delicious, I don't think this will go be one of our regulars just because it isn't as healthy as I would like it to be. I did pack it with more vegetables than the recipe called for. Here is the link to the recipe I referred to and I will provide my altered recipe below.

Ingredients (serves 4-6)
