Golden Curry

This is my favorite Curry dish- very easy and fast to make.

You will need to find this- Tom Thumb has it, not sure about other stores.

Cook 1 lb. of chicked (or beef, lamb), add veggies (I usually use 1 small onion, potatoes and carrots), add 2 1/2 cups of water and let simmer for 8- 10 min. Add sauce mix.
Serve over rice.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

You will need:
pizza dough (see for recipe below)
cooked chicken- cut i strips, tossed in bbq sauce
bbq sauce
any other topping you like (red onions,....)

spread pizza dough, drizzle some olive oil on top

spread some bbq sauce on the dough and add chicken
sprinkle with cheese
bake for about 15- 20 min at 350 degrees

Basic bread dough

I like using this for pizza dough or baking a loaf of bread.

You will need:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 2/3 cups white flour (or all white flour if you prefer)
1 cup buttermilk (warm)
1/2 cup water (warm)
1 pk. yeast
2 -3 Tbsp. salt

If you have a bread maker put all the liquids in first and then add the flour, salt and yeast (check label if you need to dissolve it first- in that case dissolve in the liquid and then add the dry ingredients).
If you don't have a bread maker, put half the flour in a bowl, add the water, buttermilk, salt and yeast. Knead everything and then slowly add the rest of the flour.
Let it sit in a warm place to rise until it doubled in size.
