Laksa was comfort food for Dizzle returning from travels. Chili and cornbread is today’s project, so I’m hoping to post both those recipes. I’ll probably do a couple cornbread waffles and do muffins with the remainder. We’ll also have a salad with greens from the garden including some spicy purple mustard greens. Rajma is new […]

Kid Food – Falafel

The first time we made the falafel waffle the little dude turned up his nose. I think the whole waffle concept threw him off his game. Now he’s accustomed to seeing the strange squares, and he jumped right in to make his own falafel plate. He buried his falafel under lettuce, naan, peppers, and cucumbers. […]

Menu Board – International

This menu board is all over the place, and that’s just how we like it. Indian, Mediterranean, Thai, homestyle goodness. Loving having falafel on a regular basis around here. So easy and so much less of a gut bomb than the deep fried restaurant option. ¬†Bonus…the little guy loves this too! Drunken noodles is one […]

Menu Board

I think I’m in a food rut, but I did manage to do one new recipe this week. I like to look at the school lunch menu and was interested in Koshari, an Egyptian street food. It was really good, reminded me of mujadara in a way. Roasted roots was potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and […]

We’ve had lots of hummus lately, so toasted garbanzos was a nice departure. We had that with spinach bread sticks. Scored a […]

We turned Labor Day into a Cinco de Mayo type of day with beans, pico, salsa/chips, and of course margaritas. OMG. I FINALLY made okra & tomatoes like grandma use to make! (Ok, it’s really mamaw. I’m from the deep south.) Simple goodness. The key was a roux and garden fresh ingredients. If we can […]

This menu actually started on Monday, so I’m way behind. We’ve already had drunken noodles, thai chili basil eggplant, and summer rolls. Tonight we’ll have laksa. It’s been quite a while since we’ve had that one. Dizzle asked for lots of noodles and Thai this week, so laksa came to mind. It’s one of the […]

Basic Curries

Curry is still comfort food in our book. I fell back on some new faves during our first week in the new place. I keep simplifying the recipes, so it almost feels¬† like cheating at this point. So yummy! Print Simple Masman Curry Author: Next Good Meal Serves: 4   Ingredients 1 red onion diced 2-3 medium […]
