Happy happy 2016!! I’m declaring today the start of my new year…because, holy cow I ate so much CRAP over the weekend! It was like the partying + good food + eating out just carried on. It was too hard to start on Friday. Ya feel me?
I’m not starting any crazy diet, but just cleaning it up! More fruits and veggies + water, less cookies ???? + less diet coke (i think). I think I’ll try to keep my cookie consuming to a one-a-week thing. But I’ll talk more about goals and stuff on another post. Let’s talk about this dinner you should make, asap!
These Slow Cooker Curry Quinoa Turkey Bowls are from Julie from Table for Two’s new cookbook, Dinner for Two. It’s a good one! So many great simple meals that are perfect for small families like ours.
I love using my slow cooker, love curry, and love quinoa, so the Slow Cooke Curry Quinoa Turkey Bowls were the first dish that jumped out at me in her book. And it’s pretty awesome. It’s such a simple and flavorful dish, it’ll be one we make again.
