Very mild cauliflower and potato curry

Is it a curry? I don't know, it is kind of dry with Indian spices and I can find no better word for it. Very mild preparation, perfect for kids, and if you prefer it hot, just add some chillies. Serve with roti or flatbread with optional dollop of greek yogurt. Done in under 30 minutes....more

Are Selfies Making Our Kids Narcissistic?

Kids who read

  Yes, they have comfy beds. One bed for each child, even.  But for some reason the two older kids decided to sleep together on the spare cot. And why not?
