Dinner failure

I tried a new recipe in the slow cooker today. Curried apple soup. An attempt to cut our grocery bill by eating a meal without meat in it.

Unfortunately, I overdid the curry powder, which led to many complaints, turned up noses and looks of disgust while we were eating dinner. Dipping bread into it helped neutralise the taste and I think it might be okay tomorrow if we pour about two litres of milk or cream into it (not enough of either in the house to do that this evening....).

A bit disappointing though. Now I'll have to wait for a very long time before I can put it on the menu again to give the complainants time to forget they've had it before.

On the positive side, I think the pumpkin tea cake might save the day for dessert.
