Selling your home means quick meals...packed with nutriition that are no muss no fuss. This Spaghetti Squash with Goat Cheese, Spinach and Bacon will do the trick.
INGREDIENTS
1 medium spaghetti squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
6 slices bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 5-ounce bag baby spinach
2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
PREPARATION
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 . Cut about half an inch off of the top and bottom of the spaghetti squash, and discard those pieces. Cut the squash crosswise into rings about 1-inch thick, and run your knife around the inside of the rings to cut the seeds out. Drizzle the olive oil over the baking sheet, then spread the squash rings over it, moving them around a little so that the undersides are evenly coated with a little bit of oil. Season with salt and pepper, then flip the rings over and season again.
3. Roast in the preheated oven until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes. When the squash is done, set it aside on the counter while you cook the bacon and spinach. It’ll be easier to handle if you let it cool for 10 minutes before taking it apart.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add the bacon slices. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, just until the very edges of the bacon start to brown slightly, about 2 minutes. Turn the heat down to low and continue to cook until the bacon is crispy and the fat has rendered out, about 5 more minutes.
5. When the bacon is done, turn the heat up to medium and add the red wine vinegar while stirring and scraping the bottom of the skillet. This will deglaze your pan, so that all of the caramelized bits of bacon end up in your food and not stuck to the bottom of your pan. After about 20 seconds, turn the heat back down to low and add the maple syrup. Stir everything together just to combine, then add the spinach, one handful at a time, stirring after every addition so that the spinach wilts and there’s room in your skillet for more. When all of the spinach is wilted, turn the burner off under the skillet and let everything sit in there while you finish the squash.
6. Peel the skin away from the squash, then use a fork or your hands to pull the strands apart, adding them to the skillet as you go. When all of the squash is in the skillet, add the goat cheese and toss everything together just to combine.
7. Divide between two plates and serve immediately.

How many of you have any moose left in your freezer from last falls hunting? Moose meat is very lean and low in cholesterol. It keeps pretty well in the freezer ... but if you're wanting to use it up here's a great recipe to try. You can use any red meat as a substitute if you don't have wild meat.
EDMONTON MOOSE STEW
Red Meat: 2 lbs, cubed meat (in order of preference: moose, bison, elk, venison, bear, cow)
Marinade: 1/2 cup cognac, 1/2 cup orange juice, 3 cups red wine. Marinate the meat over night in covered bowl or large Baggie.
Vegetables:
• 1 onion chopped
• 4 cloves minced garlic
• 2 cups carrots - cut up or baby carrots
• 1 lb potatoes, cubed, bite size
• 1 can, jar or 1 pkg. frozen pearl onions
• 1 cup chopped celery
• 1 can stewed tomatoes
• 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
• 1 peeled & cubed parsnip
• 1 can water chestnuts, sliced
• 1/2 cup Golden raisins
• 1 pkg or 2 cups frozen peas
Seasonings:
• 1/2 tsp dried thyme (or fresh sprigs)
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp pepper
• 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
• 1/2 tsp Herbs de Provence
• Pinch of sugar (to balance out the acid from red wine)
• 1/2 tsp oregano
• 1 dash cayenne pepper
• 1 tsp dry mustard
• 1 cup white flour
Liquids:
• Marinade, cookbook over
• 1 bottle dark beer (Guinness or St. Pauli Girl works well)
• 4 cups water
• 2 cups beef broth
Horseradish Sour Cream: 1 cup sour cream + 1 T horseradish
Preparation:
1. Marinate meat for 6+ hours
2. Preheat large, heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium high heat with 3 T butter and 1/4 cup oil
3. Preheat oven to 300 deg.
4. While pan is heating, arrange flour in large dish
5. Drain meat well in strainer, saving all marinade
6. Season the cubed meat with salt and pepper
7. Dredge meat in flour to coat
8. Shake off excess flour, then add meat chunks in single layer to hot pan, being careful not to over crowd.
9. Thoroughly brown all meat on all sides in oil and butter (do in several batches, adding oil & butter as needed)
10. Remove browned meat to plate and reserve
11. Add wine marinade to pan, bring up to simmer while scraping bottom of pan with wooden spoon
12. Once wine is hot, add seasonings, beef stock, stewed tomatoes, beer and water
13. Bring mixture to boil and then reduce to simmer
14. Brown chopped onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery, potatoes, parsnip and garlic in 2 T of butter and oil
15. Add vegis to liquid
16. Cook uncovered until liquids start to thicken, about 15 to 20 minutes
17. Add meat to pot
18. Cover and cook in 300 deg. oven for 1 hour
19. After 1 hour, add raisins and water chestnuts
20. Cook covered for 3 hours more, until veggies and meat are tender, stirring occasionally
21. Add frozen peas during last few minutes of cooking
22. Remove bay leaves and thyme sprigs, if used
23. Place stew in soup bowl, drizzle with olive oil and add dollop of Horseradish Sour Cream
24. Garnish with chopped parsley
25. Serve with toasted peasant bread
Tastes even better reheated as leftovers!
Enjoy!

Spring has arrived in Edmonton. Grass is greening and soon the first leaf buds will be on the trees. It's to early to do more than dream of enjoying food from your own garden, but that doesn't mean you can't have fresh garden produce and more....We went to Mothers Market this weekend....what a great farmers market and a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon... http://www.bestedmontonrealestate.com/…/eat-fresh-mothers-f…

Ok, it was spring last week, but this week it's back to chilly weather. It's still time to start planning a garden. Even if you're selling your home this summer, having a garden will add immensely to the value...and leaves a lasting impression on all your visitors..http://www.bestedmontonrealestate.com/…/spring-in-edmonton-…
