Curry Roasted Veggies

My husband and I are participating in our first farm share which means a slew of new vegetables each week – Yay! With so many veggies, I need to a) use them and b) use them creatively.

It’s What’s For Dinner…

We recently bought some ground beef at BJ’s.  Since my husband is not a lover of beef, we rarely buy it and as a result have only used it to make tacos!  There’s got to be a more sophisticated option!  Just a quick search on Pinterest and I came across this delicious recipe for sweet and spicy Korean Beef.  I’ve adapted the recipe slightly from Six Sisters’ Stuff
