I have been trying several of your recipes this week, The very simple cabbage/onion one was such a bit hit with my husband that he didn’t notice potatoes were missing!! All have been such a great new meal pleaser. I am so glad that I found you. Bonus is that I lost 5 lbs this week, and that was not my plan! No fancy ingredients, down to earth foods, ingredients, easy to cook. Thank you again.
You’re so very welcome Barbara! That just made my day today.
This was absolutely delicious. I didn’t even noticed that it’s supposed to feed four people, as I ate the squash as a meal 😀
I will be looking at more of your recipes!
So glad you loved it Lexi!
