butternut squash & boots.






I dare say this might be turning into a food blog.  Tonight I was feeling inspired.  I cut up the butternut squash that's been sitting on my counter for..... a week at least now, and roasted it with some olive oil and salt n pepper.  Delish!  Sugary heaven in your mouth.  What you see in the picture is only a fourth of the squash, and since my dinner guest didn't like it much.... there's some leftovers.  What does one do with leftover squash?  I almost want to make mashed squash with caramelized brown sugar.  Is that... allowed?  Will continue the brainstorming.

Also, milking the inspiration for all it was worth (and taking full advantage of weeknight with no classes) I tried a recipe for buttermilk biscuits, that were more like 1/2 cup cream 1/4 cup 1% milk biscuits.  Which turned out much better than that one time I made scones.  Finished the dinner with lemon-y perch and a side of quinoa.  

In things not related to food, I've (mostly) decided that I'm going to give the half marathon a try this weekend, and power through the challenging foot issues I've been having.  I ran for a bit today and although it's sore/tired at times during the day, during the run everything seemed fine.  So I'm going to continue resting a bit and gear up for race day this weekend!  

Also,


I'm thinking about these boots.

And this cable-knit sweater.

And this cute as can be video, of a grandma and grandpa accidentally recording 5 minutes of them trying to take a picture using their computer.

How is your week going so far?

Yummmmm
Try the brown sugar thing! Or make a caramelized onion jam? Or maybe mash with smoked paprika.

You should tell your dinner guest that butternut squash is like insanely healthy for you ;)
