hi all! I hope you’re enjoying your week!
Last night I got the urge to cook new recipes.
Within an hour & a half I came up with 3 new ones!

Talk about a girl with a mission.

Not sure if I’m alone with this but I’ll be sitting there during the day
and a new idea will pop into my head
& BOOM!

That night it is created.

Edible or not, I still feel accomplished.

To continue with my sharing of #plantPOWER recipes from last week,
how about we move to number 3 today?

So Simple!
I was inspired by my best friend Kate.
We text back and forth new recipes we try & she made a version of this! Winking smile

Directions:

Wash & Cut acorn squash in half (I used a golden acorn squash)
scoop out seeds & spray squash with coconut spray.
Put face down in a baking dish & bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
