Meatloaf, Squash Monsters and Cookies

Turkey Basil Meatloaf from the Planet Organic Market Deli

Ingredients: Ground Turkey, Organic Onions, Marinara Sauce (Organic 
Tomatoes, Organic Onion, Organic Canola Oil, Organic Garlic, Dried Basil, 
Organic Oregano, Thyme, Sea Salt, Black Pepper), Bread Crumbs, Organic Free 
Range Eggs, Fresh Basil, Oregano, Sea Salt, Organic Garlic, Black Pepper, Parsley

Apologies for only halving half of the meatloaf to show you by the time
it hit the plate... So yummy, I was impatiently hungry couldn't resist!

The abundance of fresh herbs and spices saturated the meatloaf with flavor

And the marinara sauce was mild and sweet

My only comment would be that it needed more garlic, 
but then again, I think everything needs more garlic!

After satisfying my carnivorous cravings, I needed to satisfy my cravings for starch... 

I cut 1 large kabocha squash in half and roasted 
it in the oven at 400 Fahrenheit for about 1 hour

Then while the squash was baking, I made a 
stir-fry of broccoli, spinach, red chard, and onion

And drizzled with Spicy Brown Mustard, Horseradish Mustard, and Yellow Mustard

Look at the seductive nature of that mustard dripping over the edges... Mmmmm

A little later on I had one of my Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies as a treat

Paired with Chinese Oolong Tea :)

Question: Have you been eating your fair 
share of baked treats and sweets over the holidays?

your green gobbling squash monster is my kind of monster! (that and the cute monsters on jim henson's fraggle rock).
AND i love the apparent presence of marinara sauce in your turkey meatloaf. i hope that you also dipped the loaf in ketchup. there's no other way to eat meatloaf, in my exbulimic opinion. ;) x

Your stuffed squash looks so good! But then again, kabocha always looks good!

Meatloaf looks great!

I haven't eaten a lot of holiday goodies - I don't have much of a sweet tooth.
