Creamy Coconut Curry (in a Crockpot!)

This is a Maryjane Rose approved recipe.  She had thirds!

At the beginning of the year I mentioned that we would try new types of food.  Ethnic food includes many spices that support the circulatory system and boost immunity.  There are many vegetarian recipes as well.

There are many different curry blends out there.  The one I bought had the ingredients we liked the most higher on the list.  We are new to Indian food.  Doug and I were pretty certain we didn’t like it.  We are trying to open our horizons!  We were truly American in our culinary ventures growing up.  Mexican food was tacos.  Italian food was spaghetti.  Chinese food was American Chinese food.  Indian food was not on either of our plates growing up.  So, here is my attempt at a delicious, warming Coconut Curry, not too hot, just spiced well.

Drink Pairing: We had hot vanilla tea for lunch but if you were so inclined a Sauvignon Blanc would be excellent.

    Sounds good and looks delicious, we love curry, I usually make a tomato based one with spinach but my daughter likes Asian cuisine so green and red Thai curries. She makes them from scratch and it’s good for us to try new things, but … Tom was home briefly last week and wanted us to try Korean! It was the fear thing all over again, so scared they may be super spicy, even though he said that they are not, so we had kebabs from the Turkish place in the town nearby, much safer option!

      We like a little spice but are wary of firey dishes ourselves! How was the Turkish food?
