I wish that I were inspired and enthused about cooking everyday, but it's not so. Today my daughter is making dinner and will illustrate for you how simple it can be.
First, buy a large (3 pound) bag of frozen meatballs.
Pour a 2 cup bottle of Honey Garlic BBQ sauce over the meatballs. Plug in your crockpot, turn the setting to low and cover. Now leave it alone for about 8 hours and you will have wonderful swedish style meatballs at dinner time.
That being all finished, off she went to school. I still needed lunch. A search of the refrigerator turned up a dish of cooked spagetti squash. To prepare the squash, bring a pan of water to a boil, gently place the whole squash in the water, cover and leave to boil for about 30 minutes. It is done when you can easily pirce the skin with a fork. When it's cool enough to handle, cut it in half from top to bottom, scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff. Then using a fork gently shred the flesh. it will look just like spagetti. Serve with a bit of butter and shredded cheese. This is a very versitile vegetable as it has such a gentle flavour. Add your choice of spicy sauces.
Today I thought I would experiment. I spooned some cooked squash in a bowl and topped with an egg. Mixed them together well and then put it in the microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. Then added some shredded cheddar and cooked for another 20 seconds to melt the cheese.
I topped this with a good dollop of Thai Sweet and Spicy Sauce. It made for a good lunch with not too many calories and lots of vegetable serving.
