A Tale of Two Squash – Thing Two #Vegetarian

I posted yesterday at Fatal Foodies about what I did with the squash guts from two squasheses. Here’s what I did with the flesh.

#4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, gave me a recipe for roasted squash. She also told me that, if I would put my acorn squash into the microwave and nuke it for 2 minutes, I could slice through it easily. She was right!

What made it even easier was: Charlie volunteered to cut both squash up for me. Yay!

Roasted Squash a la the Amazing Sara Marian

  • diced acorn and butternut squash
  • olive oil
  • garlic clove, minced
  • sage, rosemary, and other herbs
  • smoked paprika
  • Parmesan and feta cheeses

Preheat oven to 450F. Toss squash cubes with olive oil, garlic, herbs, paprika, salt, and pepper. Roast 30-40 minutes, stirring halfway through. Add cheeses and eat!

Now, Dan is gonna say it would be better with some sausage in there. I would have thought so, too, BUT NO! It was SO bursting with flavor, anything else would have been too much. Honestly, this is SO GOOD!

I forgotted that I did a guest post on March 4, 2017 at Ladies of Mystery, talking about How DEAD GUY was born! Go check it out and leave me a comment there, ‘k?

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about seeds.





I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Mmmmmmm, sauuuusaaaaaaage.

    This does look good, except that I do not like Feta cheese, but my wife does similar things with squish. And yes, I think the plural of squash is squish.
