Meatless Monday Squash Recipes

Last week was catch up time for me – I just returned from L.A. where I not only spent four days at Expo West – the Natural Food Products show, but I also took another week for vacation, just by myself. Expo West was amazing and overwhelming and so much dang fun, I cannot wait to go back next year!

…and vacation time was so nice. I went to the beach, I walked all over everywhere, I relaxed and I ate some fantastic food. I have at least a couple of posts to recap, coming soon.

So, all of that means I have not been around for Meatless Mondays. This week the ingredient is squash, which I love in so many ways. In lieu of a new recipe, I am sharing some of my favorites with you.

Anyone want to take a half a guess at what my favorite squash is? It may not be apparent here. But it might. Do you have a favorite?

One of each please. I haven’t had kabocha in ages. I do have a butternut squash eyeing me though. I’m so glad you got to enjoy and relax!

Mmm, I have one butternut waiting for something too – and TWO kabocha… 😉

I don’t know where to begin with all the goodness on this page! I have 1 kabocha left. Decisions decisions…

I have to admit, I was pretty jealous of that whole trip you were on. One day, I’m going to sneak into your luggage. :)

I hope you have an amazing week! xoxo

you only have one left?!? didn’t Tony *JUST* share that photo of you buying four? 😉 oooh, we would have so much fun on a trip like that! you should plan to attend Expo West next year – a press pass is free (and it’s the best way to go – press room and a HUGE bag of swag…) and we could share a room!
