I love parties. I love them more when I host them. Regardless of how much ever planning I do I run around the place like a headless chicken the day of the party. Despite that I still love hosting parties. My friends / family coming together sitting and talking eating good food, Nice I say J.
So for Easter we decided to have a party just for our close friends (we as in Binish, my husband and I). Menu planned, items bought but guess what I fell sick. Fever, cold and the works uff not very nice (I did lose a couple of kilos so that way it is good I guess). Anyways being unwell means I just didn’t have the energy for anything too fancy so I compromised on this simple chicken curry. It is simple but delicious. Do try it people and let me know what you think.
