It seems the only way I can concentrate these days is when I’m walking! I took my Micro flash cards out for a walk and said I couldn’t come back until I’d memorized them. An hour and 10 minutes later…. done and done!! I love walking and studying. When I’m studying at home there are so many distractions – the Internet, email, the phone, the KITCHEN – so many things I could be doing. But when I’m walking….there’s just the trees and houses to look at. (I know you’re not supposed to end a sentence with “at” but how else should I write that? “At which to look?”)
Before I left on my walk, I came home from class starving. I guess my post-lunch hunger was real. I had a big bowl of the last of our TJ’s Euro yogurt with the last of the cranberry sauce and the last of a box of Quaker Squares – plus a half tbsp or so of pumpkin butter! So good!
Dinner tonight was modeled after this recipe I found on Eggs On Sunday: Roasted Delicata Squash Stuffed with White Beans, Greens & Sage.
I resisted buying my favorite mixed autumn gords this year because I didn’t want to spend money on something I wouldn’t eat, so I decided to buy these darling baby squash instead! They were the centerpiece for our party.
While cutting them open, I almost had a knife accident. I then I realized it has been almost exactly a year to the DAY of my previous knife accident (which I was easily able to reference thanks to my handy blog!) This year the back end of the knife slipped out of my hand. I am TERRIFED of knives and hate using them. But I was home alone and had to get this squash cut open!
AFTER the knife accident I decided to finish off the delicious St. Supery Elu we had on my b-day. I had about a 4 oz glass –
So back to the recipe! We pretty much made it exactly as the recipe directed, but probably with less olive oil, with smaller squash, and with panko breadcrumbs.
The squash were good, but we both thought they were a little on the dry side. They needed a wet binder like BBQ sauce or melted cheese.
He got the big one; She had the smaller one 🙂
The other little squash – a baby golden acorn.
I ended up drizzling a little maple on it all –
And Great Harvest Focaccia
We had a little bit more wine from another open bottle we had leftover. DO NOT drink this wine!! It was not very good at all.
I loved having wine with a weeknight dinner. It made it feel so special 🙂
