i hate winter

so i know we just had christmas vacation and all, but i'm going away on monday for vacation vacation for 3 whole weeks! no where particularly warm, but definitely warmer than here & where i won't have to worry about driving in the snow. so, this weekend will be your last chance for frozen meals, salads & sweets until february 7th!

i figure that most people made some resolutions over the holidays so i tried to make some healthier freezer meals this week.

first up was a big batch of vegan vegetable curry. i absolutely love making curry and developing the flavour all the way from the garlic & ginger base to the lime & cilantro finishing touches. this batch has cauliflower, sweet potatoes, baby potatoes, chickpeas, green beans, red peppers, tomatoes & spinach. the side dish is a quinoa & basmati combo seasoned with star anise & cardamom. it's vegan & gluten free.

then it was a giant batch of moroccan meatballs. the beef is from getaway farm so it's all grass fed & local. it's seasoned with ginger, sumac, coriander, parsley & chillies. the tomato sauce is jazzed up with fennel seed, dates, olives, lemon & honey. the veggies are roasted peppers, zucchini & swiss chard. it comes with a side of harissa quinoa with almonds, parsley & green onions. it's gluten free & dairy free.

small $10  large $20

there's also a paleo version. instead of the quinoa there's a whole whack of veggies & the addition of mushrooms. this version is nut free.

i made 3 types of salad this week too:

1. sweet potato: vegan, gluten free, dairy free, paleo

2. beet: vegetarian, cow dairy free

3. broccoli: gluten free, dairy free, paleo

of course there are lots of sweets too.

breakfast cookies
goat milk fudge
snickers brownies
maple walnut bars
peppermint bars
eggnog cheesecakes
gluten free cupcakes

i also made a gluten free cake earlier in the week. it had a combo of raspberry & grapefruit frostings & i was pretty pumped with how it turned out!

i have two more cakes to decorate tomorrow night after the market, stay tuned to my instagram & facebook accounts to see how they turn out.

well i hope to see lots of regulars this weekend, but if i don't, have a great rest of january & i'll see you on february 7th!
