No, we didn’t have them together at the same time. However, because I recently had my wisdom teeth out (and consequently haven’t been doing much related to food other than pick at it and wish it was softer) I thought I would talk about a squash casserole we had the other day.
It’s a Paula Deen recipe and (for once) we made it just like the recipe called for. We had it the other day with our Parmesan tilapia. The recipe can be found here. Here’s the picture of how it turned out for us:
It turned out pretty good. The buttery-ness and the crunch of the Ritz crackers was great, and I loved the fresh taste of the squash. And of course, who can pass on the gooey goodness of anything cheesy? It worked well together and complimented the sauce on our tilapia very well. Of course, it didn’t add a whole lot of color to the meal. Still, I plan on having it again and have been happy to have the leftovers as an option for my still tender mouth.
On a side note, I never realized how few “soft” dishes there are to choose from. When going for something healthy, something soft, and some variety…it gets rather difficult to plan meals rather quickly.
To my readers: What’s your favorite soft dish?
