Simple is best. And honestly, when you don’t know what to cook, sometimes its helpful to just raid your fridge and dump stuff in a pot or in my case the instant pot. Made some Red Thai Kidney Bean Curry, and it was so yum. 😍
Red Thai Kidney Bean Curry
2 cans red kidney beans
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tbsp red Thai Curry paste
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp ginger powder or inch fresh ginger minced
1 heaping tbsp minced garlic
1 cup lite coconut milk (optional but definitely adds depth to this dish)
1 can diced tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1/3 cup red lentils
1 1/2 cups water 🥣
Stove top: In a large sauce pan add in onions and sauté until translucent. Add in garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add in tomatoes, coconut milk, beans, lentils and remaining seasonings. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until red lentils are fully cooked. Stir together and remove from heat. Garnish, adjust seasonings to preference and serve. 🌱
Instant Pot: Under sauté settings, sauté onion, garlic and ginger until onion is translucent. Dump remaining ingredients into instant pot. Seal pressure cooker and set to 15 minutes on manual. 🥣
Enjoyed my bowl with roasted sweet potato, corn, roasted zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. 😋
Back at it after a nice #tdf rest day. Stage 10. Annecy > Le Grand-Bornand. Lentil salad with @rainshadowmeats pork belly and a cabbage and carrot salad. Paired with a savoie white. 👌🏼 This dish is a must make.
Summer I love you but can you chill just a bit? I live in Canada and I didn’t expect I’d need AC in my life after moving West of T.O 🔥
Tonight it’s a late dinner with this Peachy Panzanella Salad with fresh, juicy white and yellow peaches, crispy bacon, herby crusty bread, greens and a simple balsamic vinaigrette. I may or may not be enjoying this in my basement next to the washing machine right now 😅
Soup night at the lovely @samfromkc place. She made tomato soup with actual home grown tomatoes! It was so tasty. There's never a bad time of year for soup. Plus it's cheap to feed all the people. Friends and food... the best thing ever. She is a super lovely lady and so hospitable. Love her.

Today my students competed in our very own version of Cupcake Wars and it was a success! Let me preface by saying these students are entering grades 8-10 and have never (emphasis on never) made homemade cupcakes before!! I’d say they did a pretty damn good job! It was up to them to come up with a concept and write down what ingredients they needed. They had 2.5 hours to execute today and our hungry judges scored each student on icing, cake, creativity, sanitation and overall presentation. A sweet 🎂 day was had by all!
Creamy Orzo with Peas
Did you know? When combined with a whole grain, proteins. provide the same quality protein as meat! Like other legumes, peas are rich in the essential amino acid lysine but lack in methionine, which is provided by the grain group.
