    Love this post…your dad is very adventurous compared to my ‘pommy’ dad. The menu normally includes and chips, steak and chips, baked beans and eggs! If he’s feeling adventurous and he eats out, he MIGHT have dianne sauce.
    No wonder when they come here for a meal mum wants ‘something different!’
    My husband loves curried sausages, I rarely cook them. I will make the effort and give your recipe a try.

    I must be as old as your father as I remember the only takeaway also being fish and chips and on special occasions you hot-footed it to the local Chinese but also the Black Stump! I remember my mother having curry powder in the pantry and if you made a stew/casserole you could call it a curry by adding a few tablespoons of curry powder! Great retro meal, Liz xx

      LOL You are so not as old as my dad! LOL, I haven’t heard of the Black Stump, that must be a Sydney only restaurant at the time.
      Yes those where the days where everything with curry tasted the same!

    I’m in the Keens boat! Somethings just have to be Keened, stuffed eggs, curried sausages and a dash in my pumpkin soup. I also love that the tins are still tins. I do however blend my own spice mixes now for most curries but there are times when it has to be Keens!

      PS: Having said that I cannot remember the last time I made curried sausages or stuffed eggs! But when I do, it will be with the Keens 🙂

      LOL yes I know what your saying, but I must comment that all those “keens” recipes are from the 70’s 🙂
