I’m back from a nonstop weekend in Charlotte! I still can’t believe how much I crammed into three days. A holiday home tour in the Fourth Ward District of Charlotte…two workouts…trip to Columbia, SC to a reveal party for my brother and sister-in-law (it’s a BOY!)…visiting baby boy Braxton (twice)…Christmas shopping at South Park….And three nights of the best sleep in months.
I arrived back home yesterday afternoon and spent the afternoon playing catch up with Big Guy. In between making lists and shopping on the internet, we enjoyed a big warm bowl of butternut-cauliflower-coconut curry.
I used a little help from Trader Joes by using pre-cut butternut squash and bagged cauliflower (life savers – and honestly, it’s budget-friends to purchase pre-cut butternut squash). The curry is full of onion and garlic and lots of curry powder. Coconut milk is added at the end to add creaminess and richness. I absolutely adored the crunchy chickpeas on top. I think I could eat an entire sheet pan of those little nuggets.
The next several weeks are going to be super busy but I’m urging you (and myself) to enjoy it all – even the stressful moments.
And if you aren’t aware…19 days until Christmas!
