Thai-style White Fish Curry

This is another quick-and-easy after work kind of thing. It takes about as long as the accompanying batch of rice takes to cook in the rice cooker, so I generally get that set up first.

Thai curry pastes are available in the ethnic aisles of large supermarkets, or from chinese supermarkets. I used Mae Ploy Red Curry paste today.

Coconut Milk Powder is also available from the same places - and is *perfect* for if you only want to add a small amount of coconut milk to recipes on an occasional basis as it lasts for ages in the cupboard whereas tinned coconut milk tends to go rancid after opening in the fridge, or end up languishing forgotten in the depths of the freezer if I turn the rest of the tin into icecubes.

Cabbage and Sausage Bake

The weather here has been annoyingly hot overnight recently, leading to me not sleeping properly and thus being too tired to feel like cooking anything involving much effort after work.

Hence, Cabbage and Sausage Bake. Its a simple shove-everything-in-one-dish-in-the-oven-and-forget-about-it-for-a-bit type of thing, leaving time for a nap before dinner.
