Spinach Strawberry & Walnut Salad

Summer salads are the best! Although Summer has come to an end, you can still play around with versions of this salad through the fall. You can swap out the strawberries for a fresh in-season chopped apple.

4-5 cups Spinach
1  1/2 cup sliced Strawberries or 1-2 apple chopped
Chopped Onion
Other add-in options: walnuts, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds

Dressing: (this will probably make more dressing than you want on the salad)
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Sea salt
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Ground pepper

Quick Dinner Casserole: Meat, Veggies & Eggs –

Sausage/Beef, Squash, Kale, Egg Casserole  Sausage/Beef, Squash, Kale, Egg Casserole  I had sausage & beef cooked up already in the fridge. I was wanting something savory and warm. I knew I could whoop something up with my taste buds creating a masterpiece. Here’s what you’ll need to replicate it:

Cut up the squash into small cube pieces. Cook the butternut squash at 400 for 15 minutes with the fat of your choice drizzled on the bottom of the pan.
After the squash has cooked, turn the temp down to 375 and cook for another 20 minutes with the remaining ingredients and last cracking and placing the eggs on top.

Check to make sure the eggs are cooked and serve & eat!
**Variations:
Using sweet potatoes or yams in place of butternut squash
