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
- 1 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.
