Lunch and Dinner - February 9, 2013

Made some really yummy meals today. I very rarely eat breakfast or snacks these days. I seem to get more than enough fuel from lunch and dinner. I do have tea at about 4pm, water throughout the day and raw milk with dinner. That's it. I am wheat/gluten-free and nearly grain-free (occasional rice, wild rice, rye or quinoa, but not often.) Although rye does have some gluten ... hmmm.
Lunch today was a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with a side of raisins and pine nuts.
Dinner was an experiment. Our very first taste of acorn squash. I love it! I seem to like all the squashes we have tried. Tonight, I started way too late for our normal dinner time, but my mom said it was worth the wait.
I found the original recipe here: 5 Ingredient Breakfast Stuffed Acorn Squash
Since I didn't have any 'breakfast sausage', I used two of the artisan
sausages I get at our local co-op and opened up the 'tubes' and squeezed out the meat. It was hot Italian sausage! Whoowee, was it spicy! But, so good! The 'tubes' didn't go to waste - Nikky loved them!
I had to cook it longer than the recipe directed, as I can't stand a runny egg. So, after adding the egg, cook the length of time it takes to bake the egg to your taste. You may have to check it several times.
