Squash Redux

Last week, it was squash sweet potato soup. Then last night the featured item was stuffed squash. Acorn squash, apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon - what's not to like? Dessert and dinner all in one. We thought it was a nice variation for the acorns and went well with our salmon steaks. If you want to try it, you can find the recipe here:
Sorry, I still can't figure out how to make that an active link, so you would need to copy and paste to find it. Still playing the rookie blogger card.

I had hoped this would be our main eating local meal for the week. But, rather late into it, I realized that lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon are all in the not-so-local category. (Like WAY not local, in fact.) And there weren't enough other ingredients to make up 90%. Although the salmon was more local than usual since we were at the coast. Darn. Well, it was a good effort. At this point, we are cleaning up stuff in the refrigerator to make room for the turkey and his friends. So, our one Dark Days meal for sure this week will be leftovers of the squash soup. We'll do our best with the Turkey day meal, but a lot of factors are out of my control.

On my other- and happier- countdown clock, it is now two days until the first of the beloved offspring arrives!

I'll check that out, Carole. Good idea. Also, pointed out that Foster Farm and Draper Valley are Oregon-grown and are available in many groceries.
