Roast Butternut Squash with Feta and Honey

This was soooo yummy! I am ready to make this again. I found this recipe over at Not Quite Nigella. I made only one change - I used Agave Nectar in place of Honey.

1 butternut squash, 1.3 lbs
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
3 Tbsp agave
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1.7 oz feta cheese crumbles
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, optional
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 410, 385 for RV and convection ovens. Line baking sheet with parchment. Peel and cut squash into bite sized pieces, removing the seeds. In plastic bag toss the squash with the oil. Spread out on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Return to oven and continue baking for 10 minutes. In small bowl mix together agave and vinegar.
Remove the squash from the oven. Drizzle with the agave mix, sprinkle with the feta and the pepper flakes. Season to taste.
Serve and enjoy!

Menu Plan 10.20.14

Changes are ahead once again. I have moved entirely to night shift, no more back and forth between evenings and nights. That is good except that now I have this crazy three week rotating schedule. With the changes to my schedule, I will also be changing the day I do my grocery shopping from Tuesdays to Fridays. I think I will also be changing when I post my menu plan. It will likely be a Saturday thru Friday plan. That will begin next week? This weeks plan will be a simple one. John and I began juicing a couple of weeks ago and have been planning to do a three day juicing cleanse. My schedule this coming week makes this a good time to it. So here is my plan thru Friday.

Monday
Pinto Beans with Cornbread

Tuesday
Steak with Baked Potatoes

Wednesday
Date Night ? depending on how John feels when he gets back from his two day trip to South Texas

Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Juicing Cleanse - 8 - 8 oz glasses fresh juice per day; veggie juices in the morning, fruits in the evening.
