  •    1 pound of ground beef
  •    2 pita pockets I used the whole wheat ones
  •    1 cup of tomatoes, I used smashed tomatoes from canning them
  •    salt and pepper
  •    sharp cheddar cheese
  •    cumin
  •    gran Marsala


– In a sauce pan cook the meat with the tomatoes, add in the salt and pepper, cook until the meat is brown, then add in the cheese and season with the cumin and Gran Marsala….

– Remove the meat and stuff it into a neat little pita pocket, top it with purple onion, and grated sharp cheddar

– Serve with a fresh garden salad topped with balsamic vinegar….

– SIDE NOTE… I toasted my pita bread in my sandwich maker first so they did not get soggy….

ButterNut Squash

Just a quick little photo guide to prepping your butternut squash….


   Start by slicing the monster into three pieces cut the top off and keep the middle and slice the bottom off… get rid of the stem and the bottom core…. then every so carefully sit them up and slice off the dark skin using a sharp knife cutting down towards the cutting board…. the skin is super tough so be cautious with that sharp knife and your fingers:)





Then cube up the flesh into the same size cubes…

Last place it all into a pot of boiling water and cook down until soft….

drain the water and then you can either pureer them in the food procesor, or use a hand mixer, or even just a fork if you like them a little lumpy…

For a touch of extra flavor add a spalsh of maple syrup to it…:)

Enjoy this delicious vitamin filled squash…
