Soy Eggs

We’ve fallen in love with the soy-marinated boiled eggs found at ramen shops and the festivals at Leo’s school, and they’re so easy to make at home. We use medium-boiled eggs (though the little dude likes them hard-boiled), and soak them in a solution of soy sauce, sherry vinegar, and sugar.

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad

Butternut squash is one of my favorite foods, and I love any opportunity to make it the star of a meal.

Combine with arugula, walnuts, and Parmesan cheese.
