Fantastic Food

Two easy, quick super cool and wicked food items for your table. Enjoy....as I did. Nearly orgasmic. I don't get too caught up in the measuring specifics. Make it your own...it's an ART, not a science.

Butternut Squash, Apple and Sunflower Seed Enchiladas

Chopped apple, chopped onion, sunflower seeds, chopped butternut squash sauteed until mostly soft (but not demolished) and rolled up inside corn tortillas. Top with an enchilada sauce (your own or canned)...but make sure you put in a couple tablespoons of peanut butter for an excellent taste. Top with jack cheese and bake at 350 until bubbly and hot. Serve with chopped green salad including slices of grapefruit and chopped avocado. Black beans go nicely too.

Grape, Avocado, Green Olive Salad

Halved grapes, chopped avocado, green olives, chopped red pepper, chopped carrots. Toss in a tablespoon or two of: Olive oil, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar. Dash of red pepper flakes if you like. Super yummy!

I love winter squash and always looking new preparations for them. Avocado is one of those really tricky fruits too, If it's not handled just so it's got a funky texture in my opinion, one of the reasons I'm not a huge fan of guacamole.

I can't wait until I have an opportunity to test these recipes out though...happy chowing down!
