Roasted Delicata Squash with Chorizo and Egg
As I sit here and look out the window at the stunning Autum colors I feel inspired by the beauty of nature. Isn’t it gorgeous? That is also how I feel in the kitchen. What inspires me to cook sometimes is the cravings for some food but most times it is just fresh beautiful ingredients. I can tell you that after a long day of work cooking isn’t always what I want to do when I get home. What helps me stay on track is having fresh seasonal ingredients at hand, it inspires me to cook with them to transform them into something delicious and tasty.
One evening that I wasn’t sure what to make for dinner, I started looking around to see what we had. I saw the gorgeous Delicata Squash and beautiful Italian peppers from the CSA box. I also had some Chorizo I had gotten from Underground Butcher. A number of ideas were flying through my head that I could make with these few ingredients, but I just decided to go simple and quick. Roasting the squash, quick cooking the chorizo in a pan and adding an egg on top, just because we all love eggs. The kids asked if we were having breakfast for dinner and I said “something like that” 🙂 It was easy, quick, simple and delish!
