Saute' Squash -Tomato Sauce

My recipe today was very easy to prepare. I looked for vegetables in fridge. I saw this fruits and leaves of squash. I mixed them and put some sauce! I add also some condiments for a greater taste. Some of us, I think, will include a can of sardines instead because it is cheaper! I can’t do the same because my hubby is on diet.

Enjoy my new recipe. I am sure you can do it within few minutes….

1 cup squash young leaves

The Fresh Ginger Sauce Cup

Do you have any project idea? You think its good but too afraid to put it to reality. Afraid of what people might say? Too afraid of rejections and criticisms? Well, how would you know if its good or not if not put into actions? Take it from me. Try it as long as it is not dangerous and won’t do any harm!

This is a mother ginger. I think a fresh ginger sauce cup would be nice. Just put vinegar and chili on it and the sauce is ready to serve. Through osmosis, the ginger flavor will mix with vinegar. It could be a nice table attraction too.

Notice that the ginger is stable at this position.The two leg-like structures serve as support. I drew a circle on top. Then I curved it carefully using scalpel blade.

It looks like a cup now.

Lastly, I pour vinegar with chili.

I cannot decide if its good or not. Brother and my wife said it sucks! They are so cruel on me!
