A random butternut squash I found in the closet, purchased in November and set aside in a cool dark place, was the basis for the menu this week. A friend asked about the lasagna recipe a month or so ago, reminding me of it and setting in place a desire to make it again. Everything else sort of fell into place after that.
“dessert that is not ants-on-a-log” (see note)
10 gathered for dinner this week (6 adults; 3 kid).
My plans for a salad on the side were foiled by a lack of motivation. Luckily there were canned beans and some lovely tomato sauce in the fridge. It’s not even a recipe, just dump, heat and serve.
“In the photo are whipped cream, cold-candied celery, and zante currants, and underneath are peanut butter-flavored white beans and grape jelly whipped cream.”
The flavors were well matched. Most of the adults enjoyed it. The kids avoided it; their loss.
