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?

Spring Chicken!

Sort of.

In this northern city, there has been some confusion as to what season it is. It’s Supposed to be Spring, but instead, it is a grey, snowy day. Guess today is as good a day as any to try my hand at some homemade chicken stock! 🙂

I found a simple recipe here:

I already had the carcass from a previously bought roast chicken. (Sometimes you just need to leave the cooking to someone else!) Now, to add the water, vegetables, and salt ‘n’ peppa. (Love me some brightly colored veggies!)

The recipe didn’t call for it, but I added a few small cloves of garlic as well. Fingers crossed it isn’t a deal-breaker!

Six hours later, and voilá!
