The vegetable bounty from my last couponing trip is tremendous!  Squash and onion, is a popular Southern or Soul Food dish that's usually made with just yellow squash and onions.  Its often cooked in a little oil on top of the stove with chopped onions, salt and pepper until the mix is quite mushy, believe it or not its very good prepared this way.  I didn't feel like standing over the stove, so I drizzled a little vegetable oil,  garlic powder, salt and pepper over yellow squash and zucchini, onions and a leftover piece of red pepper.  It baked at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.  You could achieve the normal level of mushiness by covering the pan in foil and cooking it a little longer.   This was part of my breakfast on Thursday morning with a muffin.

My husband and I then paired it with Gorden's Grilled Classic Salmon Filets, that were on sale and paired with a coupon to get it at $2 a box.  I added a box of cooked spinach to the leftover pasta sauce from earlier this week and our first meal together in a temporarily empty nest is history.  I never had the salmon fillets before, next time I think I'll going to use it as part of a fish taco or similar type recipe.
