I do love to cook, and most of all I love to eat. But there are times I just wish great food would magically appear in my kitchen. Today was one of those days. It was my let down day. The day after all my fun company left. The "need to clean house but have no reason to" day. The.... ok, I'll spare you the whole list of reasons why I'm not in the mood to cook. So I trudged through the Wal-Mart and bought my little half gallon of milk rather than the gallon I used to get, and I saw an acorn squash. It just seemed to fit the weather. So I bought it.
Here's the recipe I used, only instead of doing wedges I just let left it in 2 halves. It is the perfect veggie for a new empty nest couple.
I also saw a little package of these boneless country ribs and remembered that they were good last time I made them. And it's a super easy crock pot meal so I bought one little package and was so proud of my restraint in not buying multiple packages of meat. Here's an old blog about that:

Dinner is ready now and I'm sure our conversation topic will be football tonight and Joe's fantasy football draft. It will be nice to think of something other than how much I miss the kids.
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
