Yesterday I mentioned that my Monday was very busy. First I took my oldest to preschool, packed up the younger 2 and went to the grocery store. The grocery store was not a pleasant time. Maybe I should volunteer to let some young teens shadow us at the grocery store. Might help with the number of teen pregnancies. I took GM, the 4 month old, in the front carrier thing, while GA, the 2 year old sat in the cart. Mid-way through the trip GM decided he’d had enough and was screaming. People started to stare. “I’m not torturing my children, honest. It’s the other way around!” I hurried through the remainder of our trip. Got home and unpacked groceries in time to pick the oldest up from preschool. (She only goes for 3 hours. It wasn’t that long of a grocery trip!)
Fed the kids lunch and got them down for nap. I then was on the phone getting quotes for new home and auto insurance. Kitchen still a mess from breakfast and lunch. And no dinner plans begun.
Enter this chickpea curry. This curry took literally 10 minutes to prepare and then the slow cooker did the rest of the work. It is warm and comforting on a chilly day. Even the kids ate it! It uses items you probably already have on hand and feel free to sub in any veggies you have. So, the next time you find yourself moments from insanity and still need to make something for dinner; make this curry. Maybe I should rename it. The Save Your Sanity Chickpea Curry
