Christmas Eve in Recovery

Octavio and I had grand plans to host an Orphans Christmas eve feast for our friends who were staying in the city, but unfortunately we fell ill with a serious bout of the flu. We were bed bound and forced to make good on that age old parental threat to cancel Christmas.

By the time the eve rolled around I had enough energy to scrape together what I had in the house, I certainly didn't have the energy to shop for anything. So we had a delicious dinner of Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, Soy Maple Glazed Acorn Squash and Pan Seared Scallops. Dessert was our favorite after dinner liqueur Frangelico and some holiday chocolates.

Soy Maple Glaze

This would also be great on pork, butternut or acorn squashes.

2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons of Grade A Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Heat the butter over medium low heat until melted. Combine soy sauce and maple and simmer until thickened. Glazed periodically over the squash as you roast it for 45 min at 350 or until soft. Pour the remaining glaze over the final product before serving.
