Simple Vegetarian Curry

I made this for lunch today and it was delicious! If you like hot and spicy foods add some chipotle powder or hot red pepper. Personally, I can’t handle much heat but it does have its benefits.

As you maybe know, we were UBER successful growing squash this year.  Especially the Hubbards.  They aren’t that sexy being blue and all….and I rarely see one in the market so it seems like they aren’t that popular.  But I’ll tell you what, they are now our new FAVORITE squash! We…(Read More)
