Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)
AMAZING! will cut back the cayenne by about half next time, I like spicy but its really spicy! Be careful not to over cook the chicken and would be good with chicken cut into bite sized pieces and then serve over rice, and maybe side of stir fry veggies.

Fry Bread Tacos II
This is awesome!! Closest thing to Taco Bell chalupas you can have at home! I didn't use the filling part of it. I just used ground beef with Taco Bell taco seasoning and everyone made their own with sour cream, cheese, tomato, salsa, lettuce, etc. I used about 1/2 c. dough for each and rolled it very thin with a rolling pin. I fried it in my deep fryer on one side then kind of bent it in half when I flipped it. I did do what a couple people suggested and add 2 t. oil to the dough. Was amazing!!!

Happy Shrimp
This was definitely happy shrimp! Happy mouth anyway! I was making it for 5 of us and was glad that I saw others say it didn't make all that much! I doubled it, plus used a whole pint of whipping cream instead of the 2/3 it would have been doubled. There was just enough with one serving left, which I am sure someone will snag for lunch tomorrow! I did not put the basil, tomatoes or green onion in until the cream had thickened. I didn't think those ingredients should cook so long. I put them in right at the end. I added a 1/3 cup parmesan cream and a little pinch of red pepper flakes also. I served it over angel hair pasta. Was amazing!!
