I almost forgot to post this!
Which is also an accurate reflection on how I felt about this dinner.
It was hearty. It was good. It came together quickly. But it won’t be one that I remember. Perhaps it’s because I left the jalapeno out or didn’t salt properly. Or it could be that I should just stop trying to make soup/stew with butternut squash because I’ve never been enthusiastic about the results. But one way or another, this just wasn’t a success for me. You win some, you lose some.
Here’s the breakdown:
Difficulty: Opening Cans + Cutting Squash = the hardest part of this equation. So easy!
Preparation Time: So quick!
Dumpster Dinner, Not Bad, Good, Really Good, or Unbelievably Amazing: Not Bad. This comforting stew filled me up all week long! I also decided to add goat cheese and arugula. Good decisions, both.
Overall Rating: 2.5/5. Just not my favorite, sad to say.
