Portuguese Chourico & Peppers ****

I had never heard of this before but apparently it’s a very popular Portuguese dish, and it was DELICIOUS! It smelled amazing while it was cooking. I had chorizo sausage that I didn’t know what to do with and upon Googling, I found this recipe. We all liked it. Bill said he would like it over eggs in the morning. This will be a staple during cold winter months.

We served it over mashed yams. You could also put it over cauliflower rice.

I doubled the recipe using ground grass-fed beef as well.

Mashed Butternut Squash ****

I didn’t make them the way the recipe shows because I didn’t want to try to take the time to cut cubes of squash out of an uncooked butternut squash. I cut the squash in half top to bottom and scooped out the seeds, pierced the skin a few times with a fork, and microwaved it. The sticker on the squash said 2-3 minutes per pound.

After it was tender, I scooped it out into a bowl, added a few tablespoons of butter, stirred that to combine, and then sprinkled it with salt & pepper.

The link will show two recipes but I only made the mashed squash so far. The seared pork chops look good too, and I’ll be trying them.
