Limeriot: I realised after i wrote my reply that you're probably a few years older than me (since you're married and all!) and that you probably, like most people here, are from the US. We definitely have different views and experiences due to living in diff. cultures. For example: I've only met one housewife ever in my entire life, and they were a bit of a fancy family from Latvia. So that probably influences a lot...

Abbeeroad - I'm so glad you had success with that recipe! It's definitely become a favorite in our house too. I roll the balls in panko before smooshing them into patties and baking. That gives them a little extra crisp but probably not as good as frying them.

Oooo...thanks for the added tip!

I tried this recipe last week, and it was a hit with my vegetarian BIL and my meat eater husband:

I did follow her advice and used only 1 T of crushed red pepper and only sesame oil (no veg oil). It was really good! A keeper!

I second that Thai noodle recipe! I made it for a potluck, and it was gone by the time I filled my plate!

This may have been mentioned already, but we had soup and grilled cheese last night. Hubby will eat almost any veg as long as it is in a soup. Last night was Roasted Butternut Squash Soup - super easy and delicious. I got the recipe from a co-worker, but the one below is close:

http://www.slashfood.com/2008/11/10/butternut-squash-soup-to-die-for/

I cube the squash and roast and it makes a big difference. I also roast with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to add some heat. Plus to this recipe - no cream!! You won't even miss it. So good.

Of course, Hubby said it would be better with some bacon on top, but he still ate and enjoyed everything!

That looks really tasty, Abbeeroad. Perfect for a chilly day. I might have to make a batch this weekend. I like that isn't half cream.

On second look, this recipe is not like the one I used. It has you roast the garlic, not the squash AND, it had cream in it!

If you try the cream-free version here's the recipe --

Cube 1-2 butternut squash (I used 1, you can also get them pre-cubed in the store). Coat with olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (optional) and place on a cookie sheet for roasting. Roast in the oven until brown around the edges and soft.

Meanwhile, melt 1-2 T butter in a soup pot. Throw in chopped garlic, celery, onion, and carrot (or whatever vegs you want) and cook until soft. Add 4 C veg broth and roasted squash. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 5 mins. Start transferring your soup into a blender in batches or use an immersion blender to liquefy.

Done!

Sorry I put that last link up in a hurry and didn't properly vet my own post!!

Lime..that recipe looks really good. I have a butternut squash sitting on my counter waiting to be used.
Do you think it would taste just as good without the nuts? I just read more thoroughly the recipe and it's added to the pesto sauce and to the top, so my guess would be that it would be ok to leave out but..did you add those and did it make a big difference?

I don't like walnuts so I left them out too and it was still really yummy! It is pretty garlicy though. If you only sorta like garlic, I'd suggest reducing the amount suggested.

OOohhhhh, that sounds tasty.  Wonder if I can get DH to eat it....  I'm not sure what he thinks of butternut squash, but I like it.  Maybe if I let him put sausage on top of his portion....
