Pork, zucchini, and yellow squash stew

Hello my dear readers! I am so sorry I've been MIA from my blog. I've been busy with traveling and a new job. Yes, I came out if "retirement" haha. I started working as a salesperson at a plumbing supply company. I know, weird, but, I am after all a plumbers daughter. I've been working there for 6 weeks now. I do like working there. It is something new for me. I went from being a nanny for 12 yrs to a salesperson at a plumbing supply. How did that happen? I have no idea...but I like it so far!

Anyhow, I get to come home and make dinner for the hubs and I. Tonight I made a special meal my mom used to make us when we were younger. It's healthy and delicious, so props to my mom!

So here's the recipe!


Pork, zucchini, and yellow squash stew

-1 lb lean pork, cut in cubes
-1 medium zucchini, sliced
-1medium yellow squash, sliced
-5 Roma tomatoes, sliced
-1/2 onion, diced
-1/2 TBS ground cumin
-1 TBS olive oil
-1/2 water
-salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat a pan on medium heat and add TBS of olive oil.
2. Add diced onions and cook for about a minute. Add the cubed pork and cook till browned, maybe 8 minutes.
3. Add sliced tomatoes and let it cook for about a minute and then add 1/2 water. Let it simmer for 10-15 minutes on medium low.
4. After tomatoes have cooked for a while, add the zucchini and squash. Put on low, cover and let it cook for another 10 minutes or until zucchini and squash are cooked.
5. Enjoy!

And that, my friends, is how you make a quick, healthy, and delicious meal! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

-Eat, love, laugh
