Mix n Match Dinner Bowls

Recently Mac & I had some friends over for dinner. I didn’t really know what to make, so I ended up whipping up a bunch of things, piling them all together in a bowl, and calling it dinner! Mix n Match Dinner Bowls to be precise!

The above picture was of my leftovers the following day. Don’t worry, we do actually serve food to our friends & guests in proper bowls & plates and not Tupperware!

A/ Quinoa. B/ Mixed Vegetable Quiche. C/ Roasted Tandoori Chickpeas. D/ Sweet Potato & Tomato Stew

It’s not super glamorous, […]
