21 Feb. 2022: Arabian Squash-Cheese Casserole

It’s Monday and time for the #Moosewood2022 challenge! This recipe comes right from the original Moosewood Cookbook, one we purchased in 1978. This was surprisingly filling, and unsurprisingly, delicious. I’ll admit to taking a shortcut with the butternut squash though as our local grocer did not have any butternut squash this week.

01 Feb. 2022: Kale Pesto

We’ve been making more of an effort to use up everything we purchase when food shopping. That does get to be a challenge between the buying ahead that happens during the Winter months (in case weather prevents us from getting out) and shortages caused by COVID.
