WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Squash and Zucchini Salad


I wanted something light, but flavorful.

Browsing the fridge, I came upon the zucchini and squash I had purchased a couple days earlier and a small cut of leftover cabbage.

The noddling began.

I began with the onions, sauteeing them in a little bit of olive oil.

 I added some garlic, the added the rest of the the vegetables and a bit of chicken broth.

I even tossed in some of those delicious meaty mushrooms that I have come to love so much. I also added a tomato for good measure. Besides, it was going bad so I had to use it.

When the lot was cooked through, I added a dollop of sour cream and a little bit of cheddar cheese along with a few snips of cilantro.

You know what, it tasted like calabacitas -- kind of. A light and easy version of calabacita. One day soon I will have to make the real thing.

  1. Had some thinly sliced button mushrooms in a salad last night. Had forgotten how nice they are like that. Zucchini rules the world, especially in the summer. I have to go look up calabacita as I don't remember exactly what it is.
