Nothing Fancy Dish

By the beginning of the week, I tend to have a fridge full of a variety of ingredients (Ah, the possibilities!) and ( not counting all those "interrupted sleep" nights) relative energy. So we tend to eat a long thought after dinner. By the middle of the week Iʻm about done, so we have left overs or I scavenger what we have left in the fridge and make a simple middle of the week dish, that then becomes a leftover re-invented dish.

So Like promised here is my simple vegetable recipe for one of those days, when you have enough energy to cook but not enough energy for something that would sweep you off the floor good.

Ingredients:
One lonely yellow squash (or half) found in the bottom of your vegetable fridge drawer
Another lonely Zucchini found in the same state.
2 garlic cloves one crushed and the other minced.
One tomato, or a left over half a tomato will do!
Lots of parsley
Olive oil
Salt, pepper, cardamon(my signature spice) and sweet paprika to taste.

Dice your lonely squash and zucchini to medium sized rings, chop the tomatoes, and parsley.
In a medium sauce pan stir fry the garlic until lightly golden and aromatic. Add the zucchini and squash, stir fry until they soften( I like to have a bit of a bite to my vegetables but you can cook it however you prefer) add your spices. Then turn off stove, add parsley and tomatoes then cover for a couple of minutes. Voila! you now have a very simple dish to eat with some left over rice or pita bread. Add an egg or two while cooking for protein or add some left over beans, whatever you like the sky is the limit.
