It is a bad sign for my NaBloPoMo goal that on Wednesday this week I stopped wanting to write, huh?  Well, Friday is proving to be no different.  Fridays are supposed to be full of spirit and zeal and mine feels apathetic. Meh, grief.  It never promised a good time.

The one good thing I did this week was try a new recipe from Smitten Kitchen for a spicy squash and lentil salad. It was one of those rare recipe browsing experiences when something sounded healthy and delicious – food you know tastes good going in and fuels your body.

(Unlike the homemade pizza we are making for tonight’s dinner.  Taste=good, body=a little disappointed)

The key to this dish is roasting the squash in the oven with spicy paprika, cumin and salt, and then tossing in tangy goat cheese, peppery arugula, herbal mint, and crunchy pumpkin seeds.

Want to try it yourself?  You can go straight to the source for the recipe. The only adjustments I made was that I included 1 cup of arugula (all my garden grew) and I used pepitas from the store instead of roasting the seeds from the squash.
