Oh, what a Marvelous Monday it is indeed!
It's Christmas Eve, my Grandma's birthday, and the beginning of a new week! Absolutely marvelous!
Now only if the weather would warm up a bit 8-)…
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was filled with baking successes
a comforting new recipe
and many, many friends!
On Saturday, I made these sweet potato biscuits and have quickly become obsessed. I hope you have a chance to make them over your holidays Please let me know if you do!
Saturday evening was spent with some old high school friends. It was great to get out and visit with some people whom I haven't seen in nearly four years! It was a late night, 3:30 am to be exact, but it was all worth it!
I didn't get nearly as much sleep as I should have, since I woke up at 8:00 am on Sunday morning to go to church with my Mom and Dad, but that didn't stop be from having a busy day of baking! I baked gluten free brownies and cookies for my cousin who has Celiac disease. As you can see, the brownies turned out, but the cookies, well, not quite…
Oh well, you can't win them all!
I made a winning new recipe over the weekend, though!
I am so excited to be sharing this recipe with you today!
As shown above, it can be a comforting meatless meal – so appropriate for Meatless Monday!
Or, it can be topped with a protein source of your choice – like I did!
Creamy Mushroom Curry over Spaghetti Squash
Makes 1 serving
1 cup chopped or sliced brown mushrooms
2 green onion springs, sliced
1 tsp oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
1/4 cup milk (almond or coconut milk would be the best)
1 tsp curry (more or less depending on your tolerance to spiciness)
Heat oil over medium heat.
Add mushrooms and onions to skillet. Sautee until mushrooms soften.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk milk and curry together. When mixed, add to skillet with vegetables.
Once the sauce has reduced some, pour over spaghetti squash.
I topped this comforting curry dish with shrimp, but chicken would be delicious, too!
This recipe is perfect for these chilly winter nights, so I hope you give it a try
Have a great Christmas Eve, friends!
