My husband is my absolute favorite person in the world. What I love most about him are his messups... because they're cute and I can tell everyone and he goes "Babe! Why did you tell them!" and I say "Sorry" and give a pouty face and then he laughs and walks off...
Anyways my favorite snack that I just recently found is Chayote Squash. It's the best. There's no prep to it. Just wash it and slice into it, skin and all. There's a seed in the middle but it's part of the flesh and it gives it kind of a woodsy taste (don't know what that means exactly but people say it all the time and I'm guessing that's the taste they mean). I slice it like I would zucchini, put it on a baking pan, spray some spray butter over it (side note at the bottom), add some garlic salt (side note also at bottom), add some pepper, and pop it into the oven until the edges are brown. Literally you cook it just like zucchini.
To make the treat even better I normally add zucchini to it. I like the mix. And I prepare it the same way.
So it usually looks like this:
Wait wait wait... no it doesn't. Normally it looks like zucchini and squash, not cucumber and squash!!!! And I already added Josh to the story up top so you know he comes in somewhere here.
So Josh asked me why I bought a new zucchini instead of using the one he bought me. So I said "Because it's a cucumber." and he goes "No, it's a zucchini, it was with the zucchinis." So I got out a knife and cut into it and waved the CUCUMBER in his face. And he goes "I don't eat zucchini, I don't know what it looks like in the middle." My husband doesn't know the difference between a zucchini and a cucumber...
So I made the cucumber the same way I cook my zucchini and it actually came out really really good.
Then I followed Josh around the house with cucumber over my eyes saying "Look baby, the zucchini is working just like cucumbers do? Does this zucchini make me look sexy?"
Side note: Yes I push organic. No the spray butter and garlic salt are not organic. I don't wanna hear it from you. Shut your mouth or I'll tell yo mama what you ate last week!
