There are two ways to look at a rainy day: cozy or blah.
Mine started out cozy and turned to blah! I went from happily cuddling with a cup of coffee and bowl of oats to wishing I could ride my bike across town as the sun set. If only it was as easy as flipping a switch in my brain back to cozy!
Dinner tonight was definitely a step in the right direction
Roasted Acorn Squash with Bratwurst and Cremini Mushrooms over Garden Chard
The squash went in for about 30-40 minutes at 400* simply rubbed in coconut oil and flipped halfway through. Mushrooms went in with about 15 minutes left, as did the Brats.
I picked up these organic chicken sausages from Whole Foods. I was going for a real German Bratwurst feel – until I realized we were out of MUSTARD!
We wilted the chard in the oven as well – just tossed in a little Garlic Gold.
I DO eat the skins of the squashes but I try not to! They really do a number on my intestines – too much fiber I suppose. I try to eat around them and give the leftovers to Matt (who appears not to be bothered) but I inevitably ate probably 3/4 of them tonight because they were SO GOOD!
A bit of the way into the meal, the squash just needed some coconut butter. They asked politely, please and thank you.
A little post-supper dessert came from my Hail Merry stash – a vanilla sugar cookie macaroon!
I could get used to this picture of this dishwasher!
Perhaps tomorrow we will get a visit from Little Miss Sunshine. In the meantime, Operation Get Cozy
