Meatball Flowers

One of my coworkers introduced me to the Delicata squash. I love it! So, I decided to make a fun little dish with it.

Slicing it into thick rings, I scooped the seeds out. It makes little flower shapes, which are adorable. I put them into the oven to bake for about 20 minutes on a cookie sheet.

Meanwhile, I cooked up some Norwegian meatballs that I had in the freezer for just such an occasion!

I may have burned them juuuust a little. That’s okay, it’s not bad! I added some good marinara to the pan and let them simmer.

When the squash was done and the meatballs thoroughly cooked, I put a meatball in each squash hole, spooned on a little more sauce, and give myself a nice portion of freshly grated parmesan.

Delicious and fun! These things are so pretty! I imagine kids might like these, although I really have no idea. All I know is that I like them. 🙂

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
