I must say, I am quite impressed with myself today. Look at that gorgeous leg of lamb!! I usually stick to cookies and bread and donuts, and the “real food” I post typically ends up being meat-free. But not today! Today meat, specifically lamb, is the star of the show. TheBetterHalf has never been happier.

And as impressed as I am with myself, I have to tell you that this meal was actually so easy to prepare! Boneless leg of lamb is really a simple dish to make. The oven does most of the work for you!  I crusted mine with a mix of Mediterranean herbs and then roasted it with some potatoes and carrots. Then I finished it with a simple yogurt sauce with feta and fresh mint. The resulting meal was delicious and impressive, and surprisingly easy!

The end of the month is rapidly approaching, which means it is time for Mystery Dish! Today’s recipe is a little bit different than what I usually make. I am recently obsessed with Indian food and curry, and so I was very excited to try a recipe using curry! I hadn’t really eaten Indian food until about 2 years ago. Once I tried it though, I was hooked. The spices used are so flavorful and rich and delicious.

The title of this dish is a mouthful – Kabocha Squash Curry with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Farro – but I couldn’t leave any of the ingredients out of the name! It is surprisingly simple to make, and is super healthy. This is a great “starter” dish for those who are new to curry and Indian food (like me!)…
