From Imagination To Publication

Side Mission

They say when you are blogging, you should keep to one theme. Obviously I've been blogging about the publication process which is currently in the editing stage (I'm making good progress...almost done). For now though, I want to blog about a side mission that I've decided to take on--a week of cooking my way through Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook, Deceptively Delicious (mostly because it will make me feel like I'm in my own version of the movie Julie and Julia...but also because it should be interesting).

If you know my husband, you know he doesn't eat vegetables. He swallows edamame beans whole (no joke). That being said, Deceptively Delicious is all about how to sneak vegetables into food as puree (I know! Brilliant, right?). Today, I actually bought two whole butternut squashes, zucchini, carrots, and mushrooms. I can honestly say I've NEVER purchased a butternut squash (I had no idea what they even looked like). Maybe this will be good for me too.

Here's the menu:

Spaghetti with butternut squash and carrot

Burgers with mushrooms and zucchini

Macaroni and Cheese with butternut squash

Chicken Quesadillas with butternut squash

Okay, so tonight doesn't count. We're having pizza out of the box...don't judge. to puree some veggies and edit.

I'll keep you posted.
(P.S. How do you tell if a butternut squash is ripe?!)
