And thanks for sharing yours this week...and picking the Greens ingredient so I could learn all new things!

I haven't looked for them frozen but I will now just to see if we can get them that way here. Matt doesn't like to cut up the squash either so that would be a good option for him as well.

Thanks, Peggy. You can buy butternut squash already cut into cubes in our produce section at the grocery store. I don't do that as I don't mind doing it at home. Get a nice wide vegetable peeler, peel the squash. Cut each of the ends off. Cut the neck from the bulb and then cut each of those in half. Scoop out the pulp from the bulb end. Then just cut it into cubes. It takes less than 5 minutes and so worth it. The air fryer does a great job with it. Sometimes I will just do a couple and then keep the leftovers in the frig for later use in the week in all kinds of ways...very handy. I love having some food like that prepped ahead and ready to pull out and use. Cook the chard stems a little to soften them before you add the leafy parts, that helps and I just slightly wilt the chard as I like it with that texture.

Same here with what we can get freshly grown at this time of year. Yes, I do like that air fryer...I debated for over a year about it, and like you, I don't have unlimited space as I did in my larger home, but I am happy that I made space for it because it saves me from heating up my larger oven. It's just the two of us now so our portions of what I make each day now are all smaller, and this works well for how we cook now. I love it for roasting vegetables especially. We eat a lot of vegetables here. But you do have to commit to the loss of counter space for sure. Yes, we cannot get fresh shelled beans here this time of year either. I am going to use frozen ones...probably Fava beans as they are frozen fresh and not dried. That's my plan at this time anyway.

Yes, that is such a good mustard, one of our favorites as well. We have some really good ones from Germany as well that we can get from a German market here.

We are indeed broccoli lovers...at our house we eat it about four times a week because it is loaded with so many good things naturally and because it tastes so good! Yes, the air fryer takes up some space for sure.

You are the one who first turned me on to roasted broccoli. Thank you.

I am laughing so hard because it took me forever (over a year) to be convinced that I needed an air fryer. Now that I have it, I use it every day for veggies and fritattas and things like that and I venturing forth with new stuff all the time. For some reason, I thought it meant that I was going to be frying things in oil and I never do that so when I finally figured out that wasn't the purpose, I got onboard and haven't looked back. It saves me from heating up the oven all the time...with just the two of us here, that's a big deal. Matt wanted one when he saw how I used mine so we got him one for Christmas. Thanks for all your help and advice on that...I'm still not getting an InstaPot however. LOL

Oh, I hope you try them, they really are good, and different when you want something out of the ordinary.

I think it will...it is so good. I keep making it and making it and eating it and eating it. It's very easy and one memorizes it quickly after a few times.

LOL...I've made it so many times already that I might need an intervention...it is addictive.

Interesting. They say your taste buds change every 7 years...if that is so, I'm still waiting for several to kick in.

Sometimes things just don't hit where they are supposed to.

You can leave them out...but really you might like them in there! Be brave! You know me, Queen of Bland, and I liked them in there!! Sent from my iPhone

Aw, you are so nice…the photo looks like a bunch of stuff heaped onto a plate…well, it kind of was that but in a good way. You can’t go wrong with cheese, right?

Okay, I think the link is fixed, Ulrike. I guess we shall see next time who's link is directed to Donna's...it's a strange thing.

I am having the worst time with this new computer and also Donna’s blog...each week it links one of my other links to hers...so far Nancy, Peggy, and now you. Let me see if Matt can fix it. The capers and sweetness of dried fruit together gives it a sweet and sour taste that I really liked. Sent from my iPhone

Okay, I guess I can see your point. I would happily make this for H2!! It really is quite good. Both our boys would happily eat cabbage and Brussels Sprouts...it was funny to see the kids trying to convince the dad to just try them and have a few bites! Sent from my iPhone
