The next Featured in Food Friday player is......

Ms. Jesz who blogs over at My Kind of Trip, with her post:
Celebrating Mommy's 62nd

That pizza shot is making me hungry. Again. This was just one of the foods that they ordered when Ms. Jesz and her siblings celebrated their mom's birthday. I must say, theirs is a family that loves food! Her blog posts is a collection of her 'trips' (out of town, food trips, just within the metro, and the like); she shares with us part of her journeys and her stories. Do visit her site and check whether you've also visited the places she's been to! Happy travelling!

My post for this week is NOT another noodle recipe as promised. :D
It's a veggie dish, and I have no idea what to call it. It's somehow similar to mashed potatoes, but I didn't use potatoes. I used squash. So maybe i can call this mashed squash...?? :P

Ingredients used:
  • squash
  • cheese (grated cheddar) and cheez whiz
  • milk, butter
  • ginger, salt, pepper


  • Peel the squash and cut into small sizes. Boil for a couple of minutes, with ginger and salt, until soft. Remove from the liquid and mash.
  • Add butter and some drops of milk.
  • Add crumbled/grated cheddar cheese.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Mix.
  • Butter the pan (i chose cupcake cups for individual servings) then plop the seasoned mashed squash inside. I added cheez whiz on top (I wanted to know what the result was going to be, lol);  you can use any type of cheese.
  • Place inside toaster or oven. Bake until cheese gets bubbly and slightly burnt. Mine was overly burnt, so don't copy what I did. :D
  • Remove from toaster or oven and serve hot or in room temperature.

We had that together with roasted chicken. The kids (myself included, lol) loved it! :L

I'm loving this specially for Thanksgiving dinner. And yes, I'd top it with Cheez Whiz.:)

I love squash in any form and this one with cheese sounds great! And yes, I can't post using InLinkz. It keeps on saying I have to create a back link. Anyways, happy weekend!

Oh there, it's now in InLinkz. :D

maiylah at: Fri Oct 14, 01:06:00 PM GMT+8 said...

thanks, Ms. Oggi topping it with cheez whiz was ok. pero siguro mas masarap if i used mozarella. ^_^

thanks, Heather
...we love squash over here, too! aside from the fact that it stores easily and doesn't spoil fast...and it's available most of the time in the supermarkets, too. :)

thanks, Lynn

hi Jean
...i used to avoid squash, too..until just lately. lol. it's readily available from where i'm at, and it doesn't spoil easily, so it's a perfect veggie to have around. had to think of ways to cook it, so that it wouldn't be boring. :D
...yes, try it! it's cheesy and creamy...maybe you'll like it. ^_^

have a wonderful week, too! <3
