Heat oil in pot over medium. Stir in onion, cook till tender. Mix in garlic and ginger and cook for another minute. Mix in potatoes, Jalapenos, carrots, cashews, tomato sauce, salt and curry powder and cook for 15 minutes, until the potatoes can be stabbed.  Add peas, peppers and coconut milk and simmer for a bit.

Bring on 2016

Lots of crazy stuff since I last posted so this will mostly just be to catch up on pictures.  My last race of the season was Rocketman and I flatted twice so had to DNF. I was kinda bummed, but had a pretty good season so I have no complaints.  Zoot has resigned me to race with them again so I'm excited about that.  I'll have a similar first half race year to last year so I'll get to see how I compare to last year. I have been meaning to post a bunch of recipes I have been enjoying so hopefully there will be a short list of them after this!
