Curried Lentils

I just found this!  I wrote this about 4 years ago and somehow it never got posted! So I’m going to post it now!  I do remember having these, actually!  But now to make them again!  Also the photo is actually from some lentil soup I made last night!  I couldn’t find the original photo. So if you make it, it won’t look exactly like this!

This evening I was late starting dinner and even then I had no idea what I was going to make. I was feeling very uninspired. I found some sausages in the freezer that I pulled out and had some potatoes in the closet that I cut up into wedges and broiled… but what else to have. That was definitely not going to be enough for my famished boys. I had some salad ingredients, but we are having friends over for a salad bar on Wednesday and I kinda need it for that. Hmmmm Continue reading “Curried Lentils”

Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce

Last week a dear friend and I got the rare (although would like for it to not be so rare!) opportunity to have a mama date and get dinner together! It’s amazing how much conversation can happen when kids aren’t running around under your feet! It was such a precious time to connect, share our hearts and encourage each other. I was SO grateful for the time! Continue reading “Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce”

Pork Tikka Masala

I know, I know. Chicken Tikka Masala is the dish… not pork. But I started making the dish and didn’t have chicken, but I did have pulled pork in the freezer! It had some liver mixed in, but no seasonings added… perfect. It made making this dish that much simpler. Continue reading “Pork Tikka Masala”

Left Over Turkey – What to do with it!

Two week ago we celebrated Thanksgiving with our Bible study and we were in charge of the turkey. I cooked a 27lb bird for 16 adults and 18 kids… we ended up with LOTS of leftovers! I’m not complaining! We had some for dinner that week and I froze some for future use! Continue reading “Left Over Turkey – What to do with it!”

Warm Spinach Salad with Cooked Pork and Mustard Vinaigrette

As greens are still being harvested by the bunches I’m always looking for a new way to serve them as the CSA is filling my fridge to overflowing with greens, greens and more greens! Even my salad lover, Tonchi, made the comment this last week “Salad again?!” And that is a rarety for him. He will often take seconds on salad over a hot dog or sausage or other scrumptious foods! He LOVES his greens! Continue reading “Warm Spinach Salad with Cooked Pork and Mustard Vinaigrette”

Southwestern Breakfast Casserole

We just love the corn tortillas hat Trader Joes sells. They have four ingredients (corn, lime, water and salt). We usually have quesadillas once or twice a week even though it isn’t paleo! It’s easy and on school days or busy days it’s fast and easy and ready in seconds and is always a hit! Continue reading “Southwestern Breakfast Casserole”

Thai Chicken Basil

This dish has been one of dear hubby’s favorites over the past few years. There is also another friend of ours that always talks about the time we had this dish together. It became one of his favorite meals and most times when we were together it was brought up one way or another! Continue reading “Thai Chicken Basil”

Paleo Pizza Peppers

Paleo Pizza… how can it be? Paleo by definition means no carbs or no grains and no dairy, so how in the world could you even attempt to create anything that even resembles pizza and be paleo at the same time? Continue reading “Paleo Pizza Peppers”

Veggie Rogan Josh

The other night Brian and I went out on a date night for dinner! That hasn’t happened in quite a while. A dear friend kept our kiddos safe and happy while we enjoyed a rainy cold night together! Brian planned it all out and we tried out a new Indian restaurant called Punjabi Junction. Continue reading “Veggie Rogan Josh”

Mafe

Community meals are really important to us. Sharing fellowship and a meal with friends is one of our favorite things to do. Free conversation flows over a good meal and friendships grow deeper and connects made over food and drink! Continue reading “Mafe”
