Or, how about Japanese Simmered Squash? The recipe calls for Acorn Squash but feel free to mix it up. Did you know you don’t have to remove the peel from Acorn Squash? Makes meal prep that much faster. Honey Nut and Delicata are two other types of squash that don’t need peeling. Here’s the recipe:

Looking for something to do with that left-over bread? How about a savory bread pudding? The recipe calls for kale, but you can substitute any type of greens you have. You can do the same with winter or butternut squash. Substituting can keep foods fun and recipes from being boring.
