    Wow that is a long time to be part of an ensemble – and a long time for your mum to always be providing meals late – and it must have added up to a lot of sugars in hot drinks! (I am really more amazed because I don’t remember drinking hot drinks when I lived at home with my folks)

    And I love the name of the cookbook

    I can almost taste that curry – YUM!

    My mom was awesome growing up. I’d always wake up late and she would bring coffee and homemade bread up to me while i was getting ready. Miss those days now!

    Now I know why that book was lying around this afternoon … how nice that you have a good memory! I certainly have a good memory of that curry when we got home from our trip.

    I also played the clarinet, but only for a few years and I was never very good. I wish my mom made curry for me as a kid, but she was a fantastic cook even if she didn’t make anything too daring.

    Me and the boy don’t do chicken but we’re thinking that the recipe will work for fish or seafood or tofu.

    I love that you have a story behind your love for curry. This is so sweet. It’s kind of like how my family always had pizza nights on Friday and I’ve carried that over into my marriage. I love it. Love those traditions. 🙂

    What a wonderful mother to make sure you were nourished. She sounds like my mother-in-law…she never wants anyone to go hungry.
    That cashew curry looks so good and would be so easy to make vegan. THanks for sharing.

    Nothing specific, but my mom made sure my brother and I always had a hot dinner that she usually brought to our extra curricular activities 🙂

    Looks lovely! 😀

    My parents never rewarded my extra-curricular activities with food. I always was very autonomous in that regard, and would do what I wanted to do anyway. Most things I did for myself, however, so I wasn’t part of a group (I sang in the church choir, though, and later played in the school big band, but that was it). Doing what I liked was reward enough for itself.

    Ha…one summer vacation my brother and I were enrolled in the worst karate class ever. My mum would promise both of us tender coconut water on our way home if we went to the class everyday, since both of us had zero motivation to go for it. Now that I look back, I am glad we went to that class 🙂

    This looks delicious! And nice mum-memories are just the best 😀 Oddly enough, i never did ANY sort of extracurricular activity as a kid….because i was INSANELY shy. Yep, believe it or not :p but i do have lovely memories of mum making me hot, oozey-gooey grilled cheese on toast when i got home from school 🙂 oh, and a cup of tea of course, with the obligatory 17 spoonfuls of sugar 😉

    That looks so good it is melting my heart.. or maybe that just my stomach talking… Crazy crazy…

    I too remember hot food after a long tired day out with my Madam Mummy.. *sigh* the good ol’ days…

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Aww this is delicious karma isn’t it! Aren’t you nice looking after them. I don’t know a single person that isn’t wrecked after a long flight and the last thing they want is to cook a meal for themselves!

    Mmm, this curry looks delicious! I love the combination of chicken and cashews in anything. My parents didn’t really support my extra-curricular activities through food, but rather through the power of persuasion (it didn’t really work out terribly well, I suspect I had a short attention span as a child). But I remember one morning when I had to go to an outdoor school sports competition and it was raining, cold and miserable and the teachers waited for an hour before they let us leave. When I got home, half frozen, I was greeted by the smell of my father’s goulash at the door…. and all was well again! So yes, I guess goulash is my family’s signature meal!

    No, they just gave me Maccas after piano lessons!

    But mmmm, that chicken curry looks amazing! I’d endure 10 billion horrible piano lessons for a plate of that, yum!

  17. leaf (the indolent cook)

    This looks so warm and comforting! Yummm. I don’t recall getting a particular dish for after extracurricular activities, but I was always fed well. 🙂

    Beautiful dish…love all kinds of curry dishes!

  19. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Ok – I now have a big craving for curry!

  20. Anna johnston

    Yummo bestie. Me likey. Just ate a very unappetizing bowl of chicken salad, this looks Sooooooo much better. Let’s make something heartier than soup, soup is boring. 🙁 I know your craving, but I always feel starving at the end of it.

  21. Nic@diningwithastud

    Haha my mum use to sing to me every morning to wake me up and brought me toast in bed……until I was about 18 lol – such an only child 😉

  22. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    cashew curry sounds FABULOUS!! i love cashew anything…. my guilty indulgence lol.

  23. sheila @ Elements

    Ooooooh…I will definitely make this!!! My husband wants to try it too! It looks wonderful, and it’s spiced just the way we would love! And the chicken and cashews together sounds amazing! Bookmarking this one to try! I can’t wait! 🙂

    I was such an annoyance to my mum, I think I disliked most everything she made while I was growing up. I just wasn’t much of a fan of meal time, or food in general. But she faithfully packed me lunch everyday through age 18, which I think is mighty impressive!

    Was planning to have curry tonight. Another oddity – I don’t think I had any sort of curry ever while growing up. Oh well, I’m making up for it now:)

  25. Susan

    I love any forms of curry and cook green curry all the time. This one looks very tasty with all those spices in there.

  26. Bridget Jopson

    This looks absolutely delicious! I am bookmarking the recipe.
