Paulie had a lot of Lamb

Reporting back on yesterday’s Lamb Curry recipe.

It was good. Damn, damn good. Epic.

Only one problem: I should have cooked more. Don’t get me wrong, I did enough for three adults.  The fact is, I should have done enough for two adults and big, fat, greedy eating machine, AKA me.

No doubt a purist or two will see several acts of wanton sacrilege in curry terms, but you know what? I don’t care. There’s too much up-arsishness about food these days.  There is in fact no right and no wrong unless what you’ve cooked tastes terrible. Or if its a baking thing where erring from the path of the righteous recipe can leave you with a biscuit instead of a nice, fluffy cake.

Have a look, drop a comment, send me a recipe…
