I've had an exciting day. Too cold for school. I don't think the blizzard was as bad as predicted but I am not one to complain about a 3-day weekend. I had some time to myself while Groovy Girl went bowling with friends. I cleaned the house. I watched an episode of Parenthood. I read more of Cuckoo's Calling-love it! I would have read more of Insurgent except my Kindle is acting up; I'm 52% finished and bada bing...no charge. Good thing I have plenty of "real" books around my house.
Savory Butternut Squash
2 medium peeled and cubed butternut squash
1 T olive oil
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 T. honey
1/2 tsp Madras curry powder
2 T minced fresh cilantro
Directions: Preheat oven to 500*. Toss squash cubes in oil, and season with sea salt and pepper. Place squash in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 500* for 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; toss squash with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Yield: 5 cups.
My squash was smaller so I used less ingredients and after snapping a few key photos I tumbled it into a to-go container for my lunch tomorrow. Tomorrow we have a late start (so far) and already I'm looking forward to lunchtime. Last week I finished my lunchtime book, Palace Beautiful (review soon), and can't think of what book is next on my pile.
