I always look forward to the first snow of the year! this year it was a little later than most, because we usually have at least one snow in October! That was not the case this year! This is from today, Nov. 10th and I would run outside practically every time snow started falling from the sky! Each time, my co workers would moan about how its already snowing! This picture, for instance was taken with me outside and my co-worker inside.
Some might call me cold, but I always have said if you don't like winter, then by all means leave Michigan and quit complaining! The season's are one of the best attributes of the area, besides all the water!
I'm fighting off a cold I got at the beginning of last week...tonight might be the hardest to sleep because all the mucus is draining causing me to cough a lot... I've been living off dayquil, vitamin D3 and tea with some white licorice in it!
I had a lovely weekend last weekend with a lot of great people, as busy as I was! Wish I could give more details, but not enough time and I'm trying to keep my uber personal life out of this.
BUT I did cook an amazing meal and I would love to share it since it is also in season!
stuffed acorn squash!!!
cut an acorn squash in half, scoop seeds and guts out and make the holes nice and sizeable!
In a mixing bowl mix up a stuffing of your choice, below is my stuffing but you have a lot of wiggle room to change vegetables or grains!
salt, pepper, parsley sage
Once you have the perfect stuffing mixed, put it into each hole of the acorn squash! Bake at 375 in a making pan with water in the bottom and/or brush butter on the exposed acorn squash. Both these techniques prevent the squash from getting too dry. It needs to bake for about an hour. then, enjoy! I put cheese on the top of mine after it baked for 30 minutes and it added a nice crunchy topping!!
Until next time!
