Palmini and Butternut squash

Sunday, February 02, 2020

No, not together. At least I don't think so!

I have challenged myself to try at least one new thing a week from the grocery store. Someone had a gorgeous picture of "palmini lasagna" so I went on a quest to find it here in WV. In Charleston we have several Kroger locations but we have one in the South hills part that we call "gucci Kroger." This is the store with salad and food bars and every known food to man. At least it seems that way! I found a package of "Palmini Linguini" and found that it is made from heart of palms (whatever that is). I had not really LOOKED at pasta choices before and man oh man are there a lot of varieties of pasta. The palmini linguini was in a small pack and it was $4.49. Would love to know if anyone in my Spark World has tried it, though.

Since the palmini thing tanked, I had to look around for something else new to me and found Butternut Squash. It is in a package marked down because it is just about out of date. There are these really big chunks and it looks like canteloupe. I have been reading through recipes but not sure if I want to make it into a soup or what to do with it. Any suggestions??

In other news, I ate really poorly on Saturday but made up for it today. I keep reminding my self to nourish my body with good things. I am taking baby steps and creating new habits.

Keep on Sparkin'!

    I love butternut squash. You can buy it in chunks at stores, but I would not buy it out of date. I buy it whole in Maine. It is a winter squash. I love it but had to work on it from childhood. I do not know the other at all. I love your goal.

    We love butternut squash! It makes great soup. I have also used it in pasta dishes or we eat it steamed. Enjoy!
