So many things, so little time! And, this week picking just three things is going to be a challenge!
The weather has changed here this week to a much cooler sort. And, not in a bad way at all because this has stirred the urge for more fall like foods. Stuffed acorn squash roughly based on this recipe was on the top of the list. I have discovered that this is a super easy meal to make (and turning on the oven is a lovely way to heat up the house a bit!). I cook the squash and the filling separately and I make the filling in bulk and freeze part of it! And, I have been using pre-cooked rice which makes this meal super simple! When the squash is done I fill them, sprinkle a bit of cheese on top and pop them back in the oven until the cheese is melted. And, what tastes more like fall than acorn squash!
A weather thing I am avoiding… putting the gardens and the yard to bed. I don’t know why the end of the season is so much less fun that getting things all started, but it is. I am horribly ignoring it and gladly doing anything but that. However, even though I am gladly ignoring this now, my day of reckoning is coming. Sooner than later! There are some things that need to be cut back, and things that need to be pulled out, and things that need to be put to bed. The problem is that I did this entirely too early last year (at least the putting to bed part of this!) The weather was oddly warm well into December, and things began growing again. I am hoping that by waiting longer this year, I can avoid that. Really… that is my story and I am sticking to it!
Next week is, wait for it…. November. Yeah, that is another thing I am trying my hardest to ignore! October has just flown by and the thought of all that November brings: NaBloPoMo, time change, Thanksgiving, and usually more miserable weather. October has been so amazing I am really wishing that there were a couple more weeks of it!
Those are my things, and you can see more things over here on Carole’s!
