! SQUASH ATTACK !

DSC03878

So guess what?

I just happen to work at a pretty awesome place…..with….some pretty amazing people.

These amazing co-workers happen to do a little gardening on the side….AND….they brought me crazy tons of Squash and Zucchini!

Not only did I score a buttload of veggies but they were all HUGE! Seriously I should have stuck my hand in the frame to give you guys a point of reference. Especially the Zucchini, straight gargantuan!

With all the squash and zucchini flying at me I started coming up with some new recipes and tasty dishes to use them.

Check out my week of  Squash Attack Meals!

Spicy Cajun Sliders

You have NO idea how excited I am to write this post!

Because these Sliders are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!

The Sliders are firm, tender and spicy and perch perfectly on their little squash round buns.

Topped with crisp lettuce, a juicy tomato slice, pickle slices and spicy mustard.

Eating them reminded me of relaxing BBQs with friends, hot bright days, sticky summer nights and great memories.

Cumin Chicken, Pepino Melon & Raw Cheesecake

Standard

It’s…..

Friday Night Fun Meal

The Menu:

Main Course: Cumin Chicken, Seasoned Broccoli & Pepino Melon.

Desert: Raw Crust, Raw Chocolate Tofu Cheesecake

Cumin Chicken and Broccoli are standard issue as far as my cooking repertoire goes. Pepino Melon was something new thrown in (more on that later)

The real new and fun for this meal was the CHEESECAKE!

I’ve been researching raw crusts; most use nuts and dried fruits. There were tons of recipes and suggestions and people complaining about other people who want to eat raw and people firing back at those complainers to mind their own business. It got messy, and overwhelming.

So I decided to just wing it and make a crust with what I had in the kitchen cabinets. For the filling I just modified a chocolate tofu souffle I accidentally created a couple weeks back.

Ready…..?

Spicy Chicken, Broccoli and Avocado on a bed of fresh, crispy lettuce.
