Nice day. It was hot earlier but has cooled down considerably in the last couple of hours.

I started to make a beef curry this afternoon, using some leftover meat that needed slow cooking. B got the idea to invite friends over for dinner. Within a short space of time, I knew I was going to have to feed an additional five mouths. So it was up to the shops, where I purchased extra beef plus chicken pieces for the 2 non-curry eaters. Bought a seasoning mix to rub on the chicken.

L brought over rice and bread. The chicken mix turned out to contain chili (NY resolution - read the label?) so when I grilled the pieces I ended up with potent fumes through whole house. Real sinus clearing stuff.

Neither the chicken nor the beef ended up being very hot. The younger child still wasn't too thrilled about the spice level but as he'd been hoeing into salsa and corn chips and seemed perfectly happy to nibble at a small piece of chicken with rice and salad, I wasn't worried.

Leftovers tomorrow.

We watched the Dr Who Christmas Special (great fun - not sure DT will replace CE in my heart, but he's good in the role), and Serenity. The last scene, where Mal talks about the need for love, still brings a tear to my eye.

I'm a soppy thing, sometimes.

Going out for the evening soon. M&M have invited us over for pizza, wine (light beer for me, I think) and either Blake's 7 DVD's or RPG. Will be back late.

So to everyone out there, have a pleasant and safe New Year's Eve. See you in 2006.
