June 29th, 2009: veggies and fries

Hi guys! Have I mentioned how fresh produce is extremely slim pickin’s around here?  This would explain why I resorted to my emergency backup stash of frozen veggies.  Great to have on hand!

butternut squash fries

First I made some Butternut squash fries!  I peeled (hate peeling a b-nut but it’s a must as I don’t like the skin) a medium b-nut and cut half of it up into fry shapes.  I put the cut up pieces in a baggie and added:

  • Buffalo sauce
  • Drizzle of soy sauce
  • Bit of olive oil
  • Garlic powder
  • Seasoned salt

Baked at 400 for about 15 minutes or so.  Until browned and soft.

Veggies and brown rice

I heated up some frozen:

  • Green beans
  • Cauliflower
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli

In some water until they were just heated through.  I drained them and tossed them back in the pot.  I seasoned with a bit of olive oil, chicken stock, buffalo sauce and soy sauce to compliment the fries.  I added in some garlic powder, black pepper, and a bit of chili powder.  Scooped some veggies out and had that on top of brown jasmine rice.

I dipped the b-nut fries in some organic ketchup. :D  As I cut the b-nut today, the smell of it immediately reminded me of fall and October.  While I’m loving the summer weather and enjoying outside activities, fall will always be my favorite time of year. :D

I’m off to read for a smidge before heading to SF class!  See you tomorrow!
