If you’ve been following my little journey here for any length of time, you may have put two-and-two together and noticed that I have a thing for my yellow vegetables. Those being… my squash, sweet potatoes and gourds of all kinds. Though for the sake of this post, can we throw technicality aside and just call them all squash? …Yeah? Okay.
They’re all orange anyways.
You may have also realized that stuffing things INTO my beloved squash is also a favorite thing of mine. I may even say, doing so is my favorite way to eat…. anything. Bored? Stuff it in a squash. Got leftovers? Stuff ’em in a squash. No clean bowls? Use a squash.
I think I’ve stuffed almost anything into a squash by this point.
So to give tribute to my
slight obsession beautiful devotion to the stuffed squash, I went back and gathered a roundup of the top 15 ways in which I have made my breakfast, lunch, or dinner that much more delicious. Hopefully these easy “recipes” – if you can call them such – give you some new, totally easy, meal inspiration. Let’s get stuffed!!
