A Simple Friday Dinner

At home. A simple Friday dinner at home. Fridays deserve super easy nourishing dinners. (And a glass of crisp white wine!). Baked acorn squash! You can use any little pumpkin. I love acorn squash for the lovely scalloped edges. Cut in half and scoop… Continue Reading “A Simple Friday Dinner”

Butternut and Spinach Lasagna

Lunch on a leaf raking autumnal afternoon. Vegetarian lasagna. Some would call it a pie which is fair! A meal full of seasonal oranges and golds and deep green fresh greens.
