See the picture on my header? That’s just the first of three squash shopping excursions… We have this need to eat squash at the moment, it seems… I don’t even LIKE squash. Its ok. I want to like it. I know it’s good for me…
We had had regular baked squash, stuffed squash (like stuffed green peppers kind of, but squash), a new pumpking soup which was REALLY yummy, pumpkin blondies (not that great but the frosting? oh my!! maple cream cheese), great pumpkin cookies… which weren’t great. Here’s the stuffed squash:
I have another 15 or so recipes I am hoping to try! 🙂 So far we have eaten a small jack-o-lantern pumpkin that we stuffed (will try a different kind next time!), a blue kuri squash, a sweet mama, and another I forget…
Here’s an updated picture of the kitchen sill… check out the cool turban squash on the left… its multi colored and… turban shaped
In other news… Bryan cleaned the outside of my windows. Yes. It is news-worthy!! We’ve talked about it for a long time, he inherited the monster ladder from Big Grandpa, and I feel thoroughly loved, besides my days being literally brighter!
The garage is cleaned out and I am now parking inside… which is fabulous as it was 18 degrees this morning. Its so brown and dreary, and we are READY for some snow to brighten up the landscape!!! Anytime now!!
Yesterday, Bryan got called in to take an ‘on-call’ day. Which worked out great since Talia doesn’t sleep anymore since she has been sick… so I slept in. YEAH! Then after a late coffee, we played Farkle (basically Zilch, or Krunch… depending on what you called the dice game you grew up with). Had an early lunch since, somehow we forgot to feed the kids breakfast. (could be because they didn’t get up til NINE!! ?!?) oops! LOL. and then Bryan and the boys made nunchuks after lunch while the girls and I napped and did laundry. What a wonderful, wonderful day! I love home schooling!!
