It’s finally cooling down here in south Texas this week, thanks to the arctic wintery blast. We may actually have to get out mittens! I hope you enjoy this cozy and delicious menu!

    The Sweet Potato and Chicken Curry is one of our family’s FAVORITES 😀 We leave out the carrots and swap in peas, though, because peas + coconut milk + curry = delicious!!!
