This was a quick dish that was perfect for a reheated microwave lunch at work.

Lime Mashed Squash
-1 large squash
-1/4 cup cream
-juice of 1/2 lime
-salt and pepper to taste

Cut the squash in half and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a cookie sheet (cut side up) and cover with foil. Roast on 400 for about 45 minutes, or until the flesh if fork tender. When the squash is cool enough to touch, scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Then puree the flesh with the other ingredients.

Garlic Chicken
-1 head of garlic, cloves peeled and minced
-1 tb each mustard seed and black onion seed
-salt and pepper to taste
-10 chicken thighs, cubed
-1/2 onion, thinly sliced

Sautee the onion and garlic over medium heat until the onions are translucent. Add everything else and sautee until the chicken is golden and cooked throughout.
