I’ve been enjoying lots of healthy yums recently… Like fried chicken and kabocha. Yep, I ate fried chicken. It was from Whole Foods and I mostly scraped off the outside bit.
And of course I had a salad with it.
The salad was red (or green?) leaf lettuce, corn (that came with the fried chicken), daikon sprouts, red onion, bolthouse’s mango vinaigrette, and sesame seeds.
I found a new squash at Whole Foods called Kuri squash – it looked pretty similar to kabocha, so I thought I would give it a try.
But it was unripe. Summertime stinks for getting good squash. I cut it in small thin pieces and spread them out on a plate, then microwaved them for 3-4 minutes. It wasn’t the best, but it was okay.
I chewed on them almost like squash chips. Speaking of squash…
I had a long chat with my Grammie yesterday (she lives in New Jersey and I don’t get to see her much) and discovered that maybe I inherited my love for kabocha. She loves it too. We chatted about engagement stuff (she’s thrilled), moving back east, and lots of randoms. We can always talk for a while. I think she’s nearing 90 (she’s at least 85) but she’s very sharp. I miss her a lot.
Hope y’all have a lovely Friday! It’s almost the weekend – what are your plans? I have parent-teacher conferences tomorrow night and I’m seeing a comedy show afterwards. We’re seeing a Coldplay concert but I think that’s on Monday. I might get in a farmers’ market run too.
