Food: Dinner Tonight – Fall Salad, You Bring The Squash

I found this recipe a few days ago, and immediately thought, why settle for roasted pumpkin as suggested in the ingredients? Instead, I prefer butternut squash or Acorn? I prefer the taste of roasted Acorn over pumpkin any day. But you are more than welcome to try any squash your heart desires.  You know, in case, like me, you are craving a light dinner tonight: Ingredients For the baked pumpkin 800 g (1.7 lb) of Mantua pumpkin or butternut squash 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon of salt Nutmeg Black pepper For the salad 100 g (3.5 oz) of rocket ⅓ cup of shaved Parmigiano Reggiano 2 tablespoons of black olives pitted 2 tablespoons of pine nuts toasted For the vinaigrette 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon of aceto balsamico 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar Zest of ½ an organic lemon grated Salt Black pepper  {more} For your reference

Food: Sweet Potato Nachos!

I’m on it! Since I have nachos practically once a week. I usually make my own version at home. You know, the typical ground beef or shredded chicken, black bean, Mexican cheese, yogurt instead of sour cream, diced tomatoes and green onions. We love it!  It’s easy, quick and a fun meal. Love the crunchy taste of the tortilla chips against all the mushiness on top. Better than pizza (wait) I have to think about that one. Anyway, somehow, someway this SWEET recipe popped up online the other day, making my mouth water, and my eyes light up with excitement, because I love a twist on anything traditional: This is worth an OMG!
