National Vegetarian Week: Day 1: Butternut Squash and Chickpea Thai Curry

Well, victim moaned - how predictable is that - but actually it was really nice and fresh.  Briefly soften 1 onion or 2 spring onions, add garlic and Red Thai curry paste - added diced butternut squash, red pepper and chopped mushrooms.  Chuck in tin of coconut milk, and about the same of water.  Season with black pepper, and a little red chili if you like it hot.  Add drained tin of chickpeas - simmer.  After about 15-20 minutes, when the butternut squash is soft add handful of baby spinach - stir until it is just wilted - serve with Jasmine rice.

Other news - Jack - the cat has been off wandering for 2 days, which is not like him - but returned somewhat squeaky in the middle of last night.  He's still being a bit clingy, but I think he's fine - and had just got himself locked in somewhere.  Sophie and Rosemary are still resolutely broody, despite our best efforts to de-nest them. And, hurray hurray - pizza oven arrives Friday.  Have to go to a Ball Friday night, but pizza party on Saturday sounds likely.
