|Bug-eyed squash chicks (and pattern) found here|
First, an extended comment on today's featured amigurumi picture:
You may be asking, "Why chickens?" Well, I could say that it is because I served today's recipe as a side dish for chicken. Or, it could be because the chicks resemble the squash I used in the recipe. And, both of those are true...but...the real reason that those chickens are there is because THEY ARE SO STINKIN' CUTE! What is it? Is it the buggy eyes? The tipped over "pecking" one? The odd one out facing the wrong way that could actually be a squash?? I just don't know, but for whatever reason, I was compelled to include these wacky, and yet totally adorable chickens in this post. Much props to cheezombie, the amazing creator of these odd ducks...er, chicks. If you are into needlework, she sells the patterns!
Anyway, back to the food. This is one of those recipes inspired by the fact that #3 is on a nothing-but-bread food strike lately. Even her pizza has to have the cheese removed. (I swear if I had not actually seen her come out of me, the anti-melted cheese weirdness would be enough to convince me we are NOT related!!!)
So, what to do? I know! Put veg, egg and cheese IN THE BREAD!
Slightly cheesy Bisquick balls with Squash:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (plus extra for kneading, rolling, un-sticky-ing of hands)
1 1/2 cups bisquick
1 egg, beaten
1 cup pureed yellow squash
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Mix, knead 5-10 times, roll into balls, place on cookie sheet
Bake at 400 for 8 mins
Brush with marg or butter
Sadly, the picture I took of the finished project has mysteriously disappeared off of our family camera, so you'll have to make it yourself to see what it looked like, but the good news is, #3 ate FOUR of them for dinner!
The rest of the verdict: 4 thumbs way up!
