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 sett[bread that is not a king cake]ing in place a desire to make it again. Everything else sort of fell into place after that.

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.

Ted was in an adventurous mood cooking wise. The brai[Dessert that is not ants-on-a-log]ded bread looked spectacular and was very tasty. Here’s his description of dessert…

“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.
