My sons are now both away at University so my cooking habits have changed. Smaller meals for the two of us during the week and massive amounts of filled ziploc bags on the weekends when my sons come to visit and return back to campus. I love to cook all kinds of cuisines, but the hubby loves Indian and you can never go wrong with Saag Chicken. Roasted Potatoes pair well with the Chicken

Peppercorns 1 Teaspoon
