Something funny, something yummy

I mean this isn't necessarily the funny thing which I wanted to write about, but it is silly funny. Anyways, on to the adorable funny...
Zeke has gotten more and more interested in Firefighters and likes to dress up like them (surprise, surprise). This afternoon Z comes up to me dressed like a firefighter and says, "Mama, call me at 911 if you need me to come fight a fire for you and I'll rescue you. 912 is Daddy's number. He fights the smoke."
That's funny.

On to yummy. I am not a fan of squashes. You probably are supposed to say squash, but I don't care. I don't like it. Yellow squash, Butternut and Spaghetti, too. There's not enough cheese and condensed soup that can make that gourd good enough for me to eat. BUT, then I had Acorn squash like we had it tonight and everything changed. My friend told me about this and I thought, I'll give it a shot. Here's what you do:

Cut an acorn squash in half and cut a little off the bottom so it will sit up straight.
(P.S...One acorn squash served two people tonight)
Scoop out the seeds and stringy pulp and massage the insides with a smidge of butter.
Roast the acorns at 350 for 45 min or until they're tender.
Add a little bit more butter and APPLE BUTTER, maybe some salt to balance things.
You'll be able to eat the insides just like a baked white or sweet potato.


  1. your kiddos just get cuter...i needed the chuckle from Zeke...and yes, that squash does sound yummy! love y'all!
