1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoon shallots, diced

The tastiest way to cook the squash is to cut it in half, seeded, and roast. I did not think to do that earlier when my husband baked his breakfast biscuits, so I microwaved it for 4 minutes. Drain and stir into farro.
1 small delicata squash, peeled, seeded and cubed, cooked
Portion farro. Garnish each with brie wedges.
2 ounce brie cheese, rind removed, wedged
The haddock fillets are baked with mandarin segments, zest and juice, and sprinkled with thyme and minced garlic.
One of the highlights of the day was joining my friends and fellow RDs Betty and Anna for lunch. Savoring the flavor of food is most enjoyable when eaten with friends and loved ones.
