Now before I share, let me preface by saying this is an anomaly. I rarely just open cans and heat things up but there are times when I’m rushed, frazzled or just too tired to get my brain around creating something wonderful. When I was a kid, this was an all time hit – hot dogs and baked beans and the dish my mother would make when she was busy baking or doing other things that kept her too busy to make a "real" meal for us. So it gets zero for nutrition and creativity, and a ten for nurturing. I hope you won't hold it against me and before you decide to never visit here again, check out how I redeemed myself.
Hot Dogs & Baked Beans - Check out the “recipe” below – I use the term very, very loosely.
Okay, that was bad, but while I was shopping – because I love this event so much and in order to reclaim my reputation, I looked for something that I could really contribute to WHB. And there it was - a beautiful pepper squash. My mind was racing to figure out what I would do with it. Here's the creation.
Spicy Spinach Stuffed Squash
Next time, I’ll actually serve it as a side with some of my Teriyaki Flank Steak. We liked this new creation a lot. I hope you will too and that it will cancel out the hot dogs and beans.
But really, we all (well most of us) slip sometimes. What's your fallback food?
