Butternut squash and Spinach curry

Hey lovelies

As part of #mealplanmonday👩‍🍳 I wanted to add at least one veggie dish to our weekly menu. By doing this we are cutting the cost of the overall budget while uping our vegetable intake for the week.

So for this week on the plan, I cooked up a delicious butternut squash and spinach curry, it was so tasty I don’t even think my carnivore hubs noticed it was even meat-free!
