lemon chicken with butternut squash and fig salad

These are not your common fig newtons. Figs are a wonderfully, naturally sweet flavor easily added into savory dishes. With their dark meaty interior and earthy outer layer, they bring big texture in addition to their flavor. Topped with my versatile lemon chicken, this dish is sure to please! Check out my Lemon Chicken with Butternut Squash and Fig Salad.

meatless monday layered squash enchilada verde

Meatless Monday meets seasonal butternut squash. Hooked yet? This dinner was inspired by Real Simple’s October issue. Spicy jalapeños, smooth sour cream, and sweet squash with salsa verde provide a hearty dish good for the heart! I used less salsa and added more cheese (because everything is better with more cheese!) than the original recipe and it totally worked, ask my husband and his huge second plate! Dig into Meatless Monday Layered Squash Enchilada Verde.

A meatless Monday masterpiece!
