you butternut ignore this post....

if you love good food that is

that pun is awful - but coming up with titles is sometimes an excrutiating task, forgive me

anyway had a lot of fun with the stuff this week - made 2 fantastic Butternut Squash recipes - and the main thing that made them both a definite SUCCESS was that my son loved them - said he wanted them every day in his lunch box. The girl child, well....lets not go there

First was this Lemony Quinoa with Butternut Squash - it also used the Louisiana Shallots
apparantly i didn't take a picture of this food, but you get the drift, quinoa with chunks of butternut squash

Then the best thing ever was this Butternut Squash Black Bean Chili - OMG so so so so good.
look how lovely the butternut, red bell and onion look as they start to cook

i only used half a tablespoon of the chipotle, could have used more but was worried about the kiddo. This was probably the right amount for a kid

with the Arugula i made this quick Arugula with Orzo - simple, unique, this arugula was strong tasting, and i found that this recipe was improved by a splash of balsamic

Took this Watermelon Radish salad to a party and it was gone in seconds - it's a good party food because it looks so stunning

ok, happy eating!
