Butternut Squash Wontons with Cheese Sauce

Today, I'm trying something completely new: play-by-play cooking! This could be awesome, or it could be a complete disaster. If I were a betting type, I'd definitely put my money on the latter.

So what's on the menu today? As it turns out, the boy found some roasted butternut squash at the grocery store and thought I'd love to play with it -- how right he was! While I sat staring at my delicious, pre-roasted squash, I noticed some left-over wonton skins sitting sadly on the bottom of the fridge and inspiration struck. So, I've cobbled together a franken-recipe from bits of the recently-featured pumpkin ravioli, parts of a butternut squash wonton recipe, courtesy of our good friends at cooking light, and the squash-loving madness that lies within my brain. Let's see how this goes.

Pumpkin Ravioli with Gorgonzola Sauce

I absolutely adore the recipe featured today. It is amazingly delicious and comforting, yet oh-so-healthy. Plus, it is an absolutely perfect recipe for fall. The fabulous recipe of which I speak? Pumpkin ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce.

Sweet and Savory Butternut

It is officially the fall (and, according to me, very nearly Christmas), and thus, it is time for butternut squash to make frequent appearances in our diet. Now that I've finally figured out how to peel and chop up butternut squash (hint: big knife!), I am no longer terrified of it and can revel in its complete deliciousness.

For this week's experiment, I decided to try a mashed butternut squash recipe. Here's the delicious result that I came up with.

Black-eyed pea cakes

We're pretty much a meal = meat household. It can be especially difficult to convince the boy to eat a dinner that does not include some form of animal. However, we did find an incredibly delicious and easy recipe for black-eyed pea cakes that both of us adore.

Halibut meuniere

So apparently "they" are now recommending that we should be eating seafood two meals a week. Blegh, I am NOT a seafood fan. Not only am I terrified of food that looks at me (poor crablies! poor shrimpies!), but I generally do not love the taste of seafood and I'm nuts about sustainable fishing (for more on sustainable fishing, check out Monterey Bay -- great info!). That particular combination makes it brutally difficult to squeeze in seafood to my diet. For now, the boy and I have decided to try 2 meals a week, every other week, with seafood. We'll see how we do . . .

Fake Egg Scramble

Usually, we just have super-quick eggs in baskets for breakfasts. On occasion, I feel inspired to make a breakfast involving somewhat more prep. Usually, my week-day go-to is a fake egg scramble.
