Aldi are doing curry spice/sauce jars and they are 85p ! I was sceptical but they are as 95% as good as a takeaway ! Cool your meat or prawns etc and remove , a couple of onions and peppers in the pan , fry the spices into them , add the sauce and give it five minutes and its done .
I was so surprised but then i realised thats exactly how its made in a takeaway anyway - meat precooked , the veg ofr the dish fried off with the specific spices for the dish and then a sauce added .
For 85p i am pretty amazed as im guessing a version anywhere else would be £2.50 if not £4 in Waitrose.
Another one influenced by @Porkbrain 's recommendation for the baked risotto.
I thought I would give it a go and got some arborio rice in, together with some funky mushrooms, chicken, prawns and some chorizo 'style' slimming world sausage.
Just ate it and when I'd finished, realised I had left out the parmesan cheese.
Still, very nice and Mrs Biff liked it too.
Great idea, just as good as a stove top risotto without all the arrse ache of stirring.

I've just finished vac packing my latest batch of home made bacon & as usual, shoved the nub ends under the grill for a spot of QC.
The ends are always a tad salty but U can state this is my best effort yet.
As for tonight's meal, it was another version of a fish dish I've done before.
Looks kinda brown but tastes great & contains six portions of the "five a day" one is supposed to eat. It's also low carb.
Gently sautéed onion, courgette & garlic, to which is added a half portion of cooked brown rice, six chopped cherry tomatoes, smoked paprika, mace, coarse black pepper, thyme, half a small can of anchovies and about 30 capers.
When softened, add a good slosh of lemon juice & half a glass of white wine (reserving the rest of the bottle to drink with the meal...), then cover with sliced aubergine, place fish on top, add more halved cherry tomatoes & into the oven at 160°C (fan) for 40 minutes. Done this way, the aubergine doesn't end up the usual soggy mess it tends to become.
