Teal/Blue and Yellow
Parmesan Squash and Zucchini Bake
I love squash anytime of year! Pair this with a nice crispy loaf of bread, Yum!
•4 medium-sized yellow squash and/or zucchini, sliced lengthwise and then into 1/4 inch slices (about 8 cups sliced squash)
•1 Tbsp olive oil
•1 Tbsp minced garlic
•1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 tsp dried thyme
•2 tomatoes, sliced
•1/3 cup light sour cream
•1 cup crumbled feta (not tightly packed)
•2 T grated parmesan cheese
•1 T lemon juice
•salt and pepper – to taste
•Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a large casserole dish with nonstick spray.
•Slice the squash into 1/4″ slices. If they are larger squash, cut them down the middle before slicing. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the squash, garlic and thyme. Saute and stir just until the squash is starting to soften slightly. Don’t overcook! Remove from heat and add tomatoes.
•Beat together the eggs, sour cream, cheeses and lemon juice in a medium sized bowl. Place half of the squash into the bottom of the casserole (you can be fancy and layer it like in the picture or you can just toss it in. Normally I just toss it in but for the picture’s sake I layered it nicely). Sprinkle on some salt and pepper then spread 1/2 of the egg mixture over the top. Repeat with remaining squash and egg mixture. Top with additional feta and Parmesan if desired.
•Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the mixture is bubbling and slightly set. Serve hot.

Churro Waffles …..WHAT?
Are you freaking kidding me?? Who is the genius that created this?? I would like to thank you, hahahaha. This is heaven on Earth!! This is a great Saturday morning treat to serve your family, roommates or just for you!!
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 shakes of cinnamon
For the churro topping-
1 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup of melted butter
In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Also at this time you can combine your churro topping and set it aside. Preheat waffle iron
2.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; Next fold in three shakes of cinnamon beat until blended
3. At this time you can also melt your 1/2 cup of butter used to pour over waffles. Next generously spray your waffle iron with no stick cooking spray. Than ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Once fully cooked immediately pour melted butter on each side of the waffle and than dip each buttered side into your cinnamon/sugar churro mixture.
4. Devour immediately!…… I mean serve immediately, Enjoy!
Oh and I drizzled my waffles with a little extra syrup at the end. Although this waffle is obviously sweet enough, those with a definite sweet tooth can give it a whirl! In the end though I thought they were perfecto without the dulce (sweet) extras.
