I haven’t posted anything for some time now. I have been busy dealing with life and all its challenges. I have worked on some new recipes and spent time with my loves. Summer has been great so far but I am actually looking forward to the kids going back to school. I love our time together but they have been especially challenging this summer. By that I mean, keeping them interested in activities and wanting them to eat right. My youngest has been doing a superb job at pushing me to improve on my cooking skills because she has become an intense picky eater. She will ask for something and then refuse to eat it after I have spent hours planning and cooking a meal she asked for.
I surely hope that she doesn’t get weird with tonight’s dinner because it is one of my favorite and easy meals to make. Here are the ingredients if you want to try it out.
1 pound of cubed lean beef
1 can of Hunt’s diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and pepper
1 tablespoon of turmeric
1 tablespoon of curry
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
1-2 teaspoons of gluten-free boullion
black pepper and sea salt.
2 tablespoons of chives
1/4 cup of oil
Cut the squash in half and bake for 60 minutes on 350 degrees. Take out the squash and let it cool completely before using a fork to pull out the noodles from the pod. Set the noodles aside and then work on the sauce. Heat up the oil and brown the beef on medium to high heat for about 10 minutes. Add the turmeric, curry, bouillon, sea salt, pepper, ginger, chives and cook for about 5 minutes before adding the tomatoes. Cook on low to medium heat for 5 more minutes. Add the spaghetti to the beef mixture and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Serve after cooling the meal for about 10 minutes.
My little diva didn’t like dinner last night but she ate it anyway. I have a new policy on meals now, either eat what I make or stay hungry. She apparently didn’t like the idea of going to bed hungry so she ate some of her dinner. She did however, woke me up in the middle of the night demanding more food. Not sure if that was a win for me or her but I will update you all later…parenting is an interesting game of diplomacy.
