What's happening in my kitchen

Last week was meatfree week - which didn't mean much to me because every week is meatfree week for me - but I've been trying to many new recipes I thought I would share with you some of my favourites:

Oh She Glows Raw pad thai - this is basically a delicious salad slathered in peanut sauce which is just delicious to me. I'm a bit sad to be heading into autumn because I eating cold and raw salads is no longer as appealing as it was a few months ago.

Smitten Kitchen's Stuck Pot Rice - this is such comforting food to me. It's filling and feels so deliciously nourishing. And then there are the crunchy pieces of rice - DELICIOUS.

Smitten Kitchen's Cauliflower and Potato curry - OH MY GOODNESS. I've been eating this for lunch every day this week and it just perfectly hits the spot. Roasted cauliflower is just everything I want in this world.

Smitten Kitchen's Red Kidney Bean curry - this is another one of my lunch staples. It has so much ginger, which really helps my stomach to settle down and think about its actions (instead of being a rogue operator and hating me). It's tomato-y and easy to make.

I would write the recipes here for you, but I literally follow these exactly so what's the point. If you're anything like me and menu planning is your least favourite thing to do - trust me on these things. They're delicious, easy, and have a Decoybetty stamp of approval.

These also make 33, 34, 35 and 36 of my life list to try 100 new recipes.

You may also notice that I write a lot about Smitten Kitchen and Oh She Glows recipes, these ladies NEVER let me down.

Alright, I'm off to menu plan and cry a little bit, because i'm afraid if I make any of these things again at this point of time I'll never want to eat them again, and they're too delicious for that.


  1. Oh, thank you for the recipe links. . . I do love to try new things! This week it was a lasagna that used zucchini instead of noodles. Delicious!

    Well, we are far from being vegetarians around here--my crazy Dad always says that the main food groups are "meat, stuff that goes with meat, and dessert"--but I am glad that you have found some healthy, tasty recipes to cook, Friend!! Thanks for sharing!! ;)
    Love you later, Raelyn

  3. You had me at, "It has so much ginger...!" I'll be making that this weekend to eat all week!!

  4. Smitten Kitchen's Moroccan Spiced Spaghetti Squash is a fave in my house.

  5. I'm going to be trying a bunch of these very soon - thank you for sharing

  6. I just bookmarked SK's cauliflower potato curry. It sounds so delicious! Thanks for the recommendation. I love finding new dishes to cook.

  7. There is a kitchen in Seattle that creates the most fantastic cauliflower soup, and I'm not a cauliflower fan. It is so thick and silky it makes me want to cry! (Seriously, I teared up the last time I went and discovered they had made it that day) I would send you some if you were, closer. ;)

  8. Thanks so much for sharing this! I've been eating clean for a few weeks now and wanted to go meat free for a week.
    Wish me luck!
