Enchilada pie

I started by cooking strips of chicken breast on the stove with EVOO. In a separate pan, I put minced garlic, EVOO, diced zucchini squash, tomatoes, fresh tomatillo salsa, and fresh salsa. Then I cooled and shredded chicken and added both this and stove ingredients to the glass pie dish with shredded cheese! Baked at 375 for about 20-30 and enjoyed. Healthy, fresh, and delicious!

Summer squash, local eggs

Set the oven to 350, bake sliced summer squash with EVOO and salt for about 20 minutes. For more protein and fat, fry a local egg and place over squash!

Sweet potato and chicken salad

Begin by baking sweet potatoes, I made a big batch of 8 potatoes and baked at 400 until they were very soft. Remove the skins (not necessary but a safe bet in a larger crowd) and combine with butter salt and milk in a mixing bowl. Taste as you go to find the perfect flavor! Can be served hot or prepared the night before and cold. The chicken salad is a combination of chicken (boiled or rotisserie), cilantro, mashed avocado, walnuts, halved grapes, S&P, olive oil

´╗┐acorn squash


One of my challenges is to make meals my boyfriend will enjoy, he’s got a sweet tooth and was brought up with southern cooking. He liked this one:

Oven to 375, half an acorn squash (remove seeds) and bake until tender (my small squash took 40 min)

While baking brown 1/2 lb of ground beef and onion. Transfer this to bowl and add two strips of cooked chopped bacon, dried cherries, and eventually squash insides. Remove squash from oven and scoop insides, leaving 1/4 inch of shell. Put insides back in shell, add some butter and bake another 15.
