Butternut Squash and Cabbage

Published July 26, 2013 by sunhealersblog


I roasted a butternut squash in the oven then sauted it in oil in light oil with garlic, onions, a little salt and nutmeg for flavoring.  I also sauted cabbage in a pan with oil, garlic, onions, and salt and light pepper for taste.  The squash is orange and the cabbage is purple giving it Halloween colors.  This is a great vegetarian meal and it is healthy for you as well.

Cheese Fingers

Published July 13, 2013 by sunhealersblog


Use mozzarella cheese sticks as the fingers.   Cut them in half.  Use a knife to cut a small slits in the middle. at the top.  Put a dab of cream cheese where the slit is; this will hold the fingernails in place.  Place an almond slither on top of the cream cheese or marshmallows if allergic to nuts, as the fingernails.  Can use a red sauce on the plate to look like blood to make it more creepy, like a strawberry jam or whatever you prefer.
