Curry Beef Bowl

My husband loves to cook. He is fearless in trying new recipes, new ingredients, new spices. So I moved over and let him take reign of the kitchen most of the week.

But now, he’s back to school with modules back to back. From 8:30am until 9:30pm – sometimes later – he goes to work, then stays afterwards to do hours of homework. So back to cooking I go!

My tried-and-true recipe collection is seriously lacking though! I default to comfort foods like meatloaf or (dry) chicken and veggies. So I’m trying to up my cooking game! And then I found this curry beef bowl recipe on Pinterest yesterday (where else?).

My husband does all the time, but I have never cooked with Indian spices. (A late bloomer, I guess?) But they sure are beautiful and fragrant and, well, this will definitely not be the last time!

Turmeric, Curry powder and Ground Cumin. Look at that color!

I’m a little slow – and I have a child who has recently discovered her mobility – so this recipe took me about an hour. Otherwise, not hard to make! I’d give it 4.5 / 5 ⭐.

Here was my final product:

My mouth is watering all over again. For real.

The best part? I have enough leftover to eat again for supper today! 😊

I’m always looking for new recipes. What are some of your favorites?

What I love most about the Spring season, is the fresh new colors! The inspiring array of pinks and yellows and aquas. What I hate most about Spring?

Reality. What I mean is, the dusty roads, the muddy, dead grass and brown, brown everything – brown everywhere. This town is at its ugliest in the spring. So, it’s nice to make things inside floral and lovely.

Hence, the floral monogram project! You can buy these lovely pieces from etsy for $80 – $130.

I’m sorry, did you just choke? ‘Cause I nearly did when I saw the price. But my dear friend Pinterest showed me a better way. And it’s basically as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Draw letter on cardboard.

2. Cut out letter.

3, Cut and glue dollarama/ dollar tree flowers on letter.

An S for my girl’s nursery! I’m quite happy with how it turned out.

And guess what I spent?

A whopping $6.00. Yup, Six. And now I have a little bit of Spring in my suite! 🙂
