Recipe help for this week

I was at the farm stand yesterday and gave into impulse and bought two medium butternut squash and a large spaghetti squash. Now what to do...

I have in the freezer @ 1 1/2 lbs beef round steak and 2 large boneless chicken breasts.

I'm thinking beef with the butternut squash and chicken with the spaghetti squash but..

I can't come up any ideas on how to prepare the meat to go with the squashes.

I'm open to suggestions. Just nothing to spicy/highly seasoned.

How about slicing the roundsteak and making beef roll ups. Use the butternut squash as part of the filling. Maybe steamed squash, breadcrumbs, and....

Panko chicken with butter and garlic S squash as a side.


Just thinking out loud.

Hmmmm panko chicken sounds interesting with the SS. Breaded and baked and it could bake at the same time as the squash.

I'm going to bake the butternut squash (half it, seed it, and bake it) then quarter it and server it.

I love making butternut squash soup. You can add so many other flavours to it such as apples, pears or potatoes.

I'd consider either making chicken parmigiana and having the spaghetti squash with the tomato sauce, or just doing any kind of chicken dish and having the spag squash as a side tossed with fresh tomatoes, oregano and some s&p.

I was thinking the same thing, Alix.

I'm making egg plantparmesan and pasta for dinner tonight.. that's a little to close to the same sort of thing. I was doing some Googling now that dinner is in the oven and found these:

Spaghetti squash isn't in the menu until Tuesday so I still have some time (yes I plan my menus for the week).

Great minds think alike! And I also had that thought!
