Meet our new additions.

Cute huh?

On our way home this past weekend, since I got to make a special stop for squash, STUFT Daddy got to make a special stop of his own. His was for chickens. Obviously.

He’s been telling me it’s embarrassing that I buy eggs from Costco, so we finally decided to try to have some of our own.

Funny that he didn’t mention anything about my egg whites.

We got five chickens. Only one is a guaranteed hen. The others we don’t know for sure. Two of them there’s only a 50/50 chance. We’ll shall see.

Their names (which are subject to change, but as of 6 am this morning) are Blackie, Puffin, Pluto, Ropey and Matilda.

Anyone want to take bets on how many are actually female?

Okay, let’s talk salmon and squash really quick.

I mentioned my snack from yesterday, but it bares repeating because it was that good and perfect for hotter weather.

Spicy Salmon Cucumber Snack Stacks

Take a cucumber, cut it lengthwise, top with wasabi (optional), then seaweed snacks (Trader Joe’s wasabi flavored are my favorite), salmon (this Costco salmon is the best) and then sriracha.

So darn good friends. You’ve got to try it.

Smile

I bet it would be good with some cream cheese on there too.

 

On to kabocha squash. Not just just the normal sweet roasted kabocha squash, but with a little something something baked inside.

 

Mmmm hmm…..

Yesterday (and this morning) it was a protein version of the fat free donut cake.

 

Here it is.

Yep. It’s really THAT good.

It can also be done with other versions of microwave muffins. Really, the options are endless.

So are the toppings.

You can even do a husky STUFT microwave pancake in it.

Oh yes.

The sweet roasted kabocha squash experiments just never end.

Have a great day!

    Haha you little trickster! I thought you were going to announce that you were pregnant. ;) My husband keeps trying to convince me that we need chickens… I’m still not sold on the idea.

    Awee yay for new additions! We had turkey’s for a while as pets growing up, for no other reason than because my dad wanted to. My sister and I named them Bubba and HennyPenny (my dad named them Thanksgiving and Christmas….we were not pleased…good news is, we gave them away before he could hold true to that!), they were fun to have around though!

    I could put salmon with just about anything, I love sushi with salmon cucumbers and cream cheese (philly roll), definitely my favorite.

    I can’t wait to hear all about your chicken adventures!! My hubby and I have thought about buying some too, since we go through eggs like there’s no tomorrow.

    Welcome to the chicken family!! We have 23 chickens on our *farm*. They are so easy to maintain and we LOVE the farm fresh eggs! Let me know if you have any questions. :) And I just had some buttercup squash, no kabocha around here now, but buttercup is my 2nd favorite squash!

    We tried that seaweed once….I was surprised my girls ate it actually but then it was gone so fast and little more pricey so we haven’t bought it since. I kind of forgot about it….maybe I will surprise them again this summer and make your snack. ;-)

    For a split second, I thought there might be another baby :)
    I would love to have my own chickens someday, only if they’re going to produce eggs though haha I hope most of yours are hens!!

    We are addicted to the Wasabi Seaweed Snacks at TJ’s! They ran out a few times and now I have about 20 stocked in case of an emergency. I always pick up a few when I’m there. Now that salmon snack looks amazing!!!! Oh my! Check out this recipe from Clean Eating. We have this at least once a week. I sub sashimi grade tuna for the lump crab but you can use anything. I think you will really like it! https://cleaneatingmag.com/recipes/classics-made-clean/sushi-salad/

    What a great idea to have your own chickens! I hope you get a good quantity of eggs from them. I know so little about the raising and care of chickens but I like my friends’. Have a great day!

    Can I just pay you to send me some food you’ve made and frozen each week?! =) I need to try some more of your recipes! Maybe you could do a post where you compile a few of your every-day faves, along with a grocery list for easy printing!

  14. 14

    That looks delish… all of it. The wasabi is optional? Pfffftt… not. ;)

  15. 15

    Your crazy concoctions are so similar to my crazy protein pancake recipes! LOVE IT! I just need to find me some squash around here…Have a beautiful day!
