I put the butternut squash (after I halved it) into the pan with a little butter and brown sugar and put it in the oven and waited, and waited, and waited. Then I checked the internet recipe again and decided that I hadn't the oven on hot enough. Up goes the temperature. More waiting. The result was tasty, but I'm glad that I didn't have 25 people waiting for me to serve them. (Can I get you more water while you wait?) Pay no attention to the oven. The woman that lives here hasn't cleaned it for some time.
1 part grain
2 parts liquid
Bring it to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
3 finished cooked product
(you can use this with most, if not all grains, rice, etc -- worked every time)
Well, Mr came in and asked what was cooking. After I showed him, he did the age old test of look, sniff, and then asked me to make him a chicken - potato burrito... I ate the squash and quinoa. I may be bursting sometime soon with wonderful health benefits (someone please tell me if I it happens)
Tomorrow I will be cooking a turkey that I got on sale (38 cents a lb with $50 purchase) before the holidays.. It has been in the freezer, waiting, waiting, for I don't know what... I will bring some of the meat to our gathering on Sunday night. (Our regularly scheduled meeting will be postponed until the evening because of a roofing party at one of the brothers homes.) Mr will be enjoying turkey dinner after the holidays. I also have plans for turkey soup, turkey pot pie, turkey burritos, how do turkey enchiladas sound? Green sauce, white cheese...
Well, must clean up now, hope you had a great dinner.
