  • Well, ours isn't really summer like, but we're having meatloaf, baked potatoes and acorn squash baked with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the cavity. It's raining, otherwise it would have been burgers and some kind of pasta or potato salad.

  • I love shish kabobs, but i usually make shish ka-off the bobs. Teriyaki chicken breasts on the grill, and in a grill basket I grill onions, bell pepper, pineapple chunks...whatever you would put on the shish kabob. Serve over brown rice.

  • It's been cold and rainy and I am making winter comfort food:
    Squashed Macaroni
    This sweet, creamy sauce is made from winter squash, a good source of vitamin A. The tahini and parsley add calcium. It's a nutritious alternative to cheese or tomato sauce.
    • 2 cups cooked winter squash (butternut, hubbard, pumpkin, etc.) fresh or frozen
    • 1 1/2 cups milk (plant or animal)
    • 1 tablespoon miso
    • 2 tablespoons tahini
    • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes (lots of B vitamins, tastes cheesy)
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • Black pepper to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
    • 1 pound whole grain elbow macaroni, cooked
    • 1/2 cup walnuts, minced or ground
    Puree squash, milk, miso, tahini, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and parsley in blender or food processor until smooth. Pour sauce into medium-size pan

  • NOTES: I have only tried this with butternut squash so far. I sometimes leave out the miso and cut back on the tahini. I have used cashews in place of the walnuts, and ground the cashews and mixed them into the sauce while warming to give it more thickness.
