Celebrating Soup: Coconut Squash

Slowcooker Beef Curry


It’s the night before ‘the big show’ and we’ve got our stockings hung, presents are wrapped, small one is bouncing off the ceiling and I’m almost cooked out.  My slowcooker is coming to the rescue tonight to give us (and more than a few drop-in guests) a totally different treat for Christmas Eve.
