Default Food, food, food

Hmm, I think we all enjoy our food, we certainly do
At the moment, I'm in to one pot cooking..not a slow cooker, just a huge oven pot. Yesterday I made a Hungarian goulash, we had it with tagliatelle. Today we had the leftovers with a jacket potato, it was delicious with both.
Today Ive made a huge dopiaz curry ready for tomorrow as we have friends coming round, we'll have it with samosas, bhajees and naan.
What's your favourite one pot meal, either at the van or at home? I'm looking for inspiration...

I would like one of these, but I have an electric oven and with these being cast iron and very heavy, the food would take forever to cook!
so I will stick to my slow cooker, in which I make many a strange concoction...
hubby eats anything

I like to use the wok for stir fries, chicken in different sauces, etc. I use the slow cooker when time for eating is unknown and I throw everything in, including the vegetables and potatoes.

I know I may be going a bit, but I just love different types of foods, I will try anything....
I am into spinach, hummous, peppers, ( I do a lot of roast veg, and different types of rice)..
I love colour in food.. there is nothing worse than a plate of bland and colourless food....
I cant wait to go to Greece, the food is amazing..
bet they use huge cook pots to cook their food in.....yummy

Mmm, sausage casserole, must add that to the list, haven't done it for ages since we stopped eating proper sausages in an effort to cut down on fat...quorn ones are bleurrgh! Maddy you do know if you eat with your eyes closed the calories disappear
Tia, my pot is ceramic, I'd never lift a cast iron one either. It's great as it cooks on the hob too which not many ceramic ones do. I agree about coloured food, it's the only thing about curries isn't it, they're all different shades of brown, good job they taste so nice
I love stir fries Marmo, Biggles isn't so keen though, and I do find they stink the van out, not so bad doing them at home. I've been using fry light instead of oil in a bid to reduce fat even more, it's not quite the same as olive oil and puts me off frying.
Cylon, you never know what's round the corner

A favourite one-pot meal in our house is one I found a recipe for years ago called 'Dublin Coddle' - basically, it's layers of sausages, bacon, onions and potatoes with some herbs between the layers, pour in stock, cover and cook in the over for about 2 hours, take the lid off and give it another half hour to crisp up the top layer of spuds. Absolutely yummy with a big pile of cabbage.

Must add that to the list*, I didn't know it before.

*
LIST.

Food has no calories if:-
1) It is brown
or
2) you share it with somebody
or
3) you tell somebody you are eating it
