Marvelous Monday

Reesie brought me home last night.  We made salmon croquettes (a favorite)  and hung out. A pleasant afternoon.  Today we ran errands…. the ones I can’t get done because of the lack of car situation.  We went to Staples, the bank, got gas for her car, I wrote letters to be mailed tomorrow, we got some groceries … then home in time for dinner.

I made chayote to go with supper.  A different recipe than I usually make, but well suited to the meal and went wonderfully with the roasted pototoes and the cranberry sauce.  So simple:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • chayote squash, cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar or stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes   (I used more…but we like spice)

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

You put the oil in a skillet, brown the onion and garlic, toss in the chayote and seasoning.  Brown for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the lime juice (you may need a dash more if you have a large chayote as I did tonight) and cook another 2 – 3 minutes till done, but still crisp.

YUMM!
