Yes it's true.

If you have an overworked and stressed out husband/wife/teen/friend/partner whatever...

try this

boil up a bunch of squash

saute a sweet onion in butter

fork mash the squash and add onions and an egg

add salt and pepper and shredded parmesan and bake 350 for 25 min

then add cheddar cheese and french fried onions to top for 5 mins. uncovered.

...after eating...they will sleep for sure...and it's yummy

I wonder if I have enough frozen squash to attempt this right now. Sounds so delish.

ohhh. that sounds good. what a good dea. DID YOU KNOW? cheese has quesomorphoids (i butchered the spelling and probably the whole word.) they are they chemical in milk which is supposed to promote connection between the nursed offspring and it's mother. it's a type of opiate, which- combinded with fatty, comfort food would definetely mellow one out.

most good food does.
i'll have to make this.

zuchinni is my new favorite food.

If you saute the squash along with the onion it would preserve more of the nutrients vs boiling the squash. It's also yummy to add some crumpled crisp bacon.

What kind of squash would be best with this? Someone mentioned zuchinni, but I was thinking more like butternut?

ohhh. i lurve butternut squash.

the zuchinni turned out great, but now i have to try this too.

does the squash need to be boiled at all? the zuchini didn't. but it's a good consistency anyway.

...after eating...they will sleep for sure...and it's yummyI think it's a violation of some natural law to use "onion" and "yummy" in the same context. If SWMBO made this for me, it would not make me a happy Silvan at all. :blech:

She'd probably eat it though, so if anyone gives me squash, I might make it for her. Cooking things I wouldn't eat unless I was starving half to death is a good thing in my book, since everything I cook always tastes like complete crap to me anyway. Cooking it yourself is the anti-spice, I think. :eyebrow:

I really do hate onions though, and it's pretty crippling. You probably don't realize how difficult it is to avoid onions. Every cuisine the world over puts them in just about everything. I just don't get it. :abadpoker

I want to bump this because it's a really great recipe - you could make it sweet with cinnamon & brown sugar & caramelized onions, or savory with lots of spices and cheese. Great for this long winter we're having up here in the Northeast.
