Recipe #18: Soak up the Sun


Yeah, that's right. The warm, brilliant, magnificent sunshine has followed us through the week. Those pesky rumors about snow didn't happen, so taking advantage of this spring-like weather was a must! I even stopped at Spring Creek Park to feed the ducks while walking to the gym on this beautiful morning. Walking and talking actually, since I used that time to catch up on voicemail as well. Travis cleaned out his boat, while we enjoyed a nice visit with his stepdad Ron in our sunny yard. And just like the weather being out-of-the-ordinary, so were our food cravings. We were all over the map. Started out with cereal & leftover steak for breakfast. Had some fancy tomato soup (fancy as in sundried tomatos, half & half, cheese, & parsley added to it) & grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Sunkist, girlscout cookies, & cheezits for a snack. And for dinner? Well, that was the cookbook's Pine Nut Squash baked nicely in the oven, while Travis had the great idea of roasting HOT DOGS outside in our fire pit. Hot dogs & squash? Yep, we agree, that's a weird combo. But it fit perfectly into our day. We did slightly tweak the recipe, cause for some reason the grocery store was out of butternut squash, so we used banana squash instead. It was good; sweet like a dessert!
