This acorn squash makes the perfect side dish, whether you want to serve this as a Thanksgiving side dish, or a weeknight meal. Not only does it combine perfect fall flavors of acorn squash, sage, and apples (and, hello sausage!) but the fact that you can prepare this side dish in stages makes it fantastic to use for dinner parties! I loved the combination of the stuffing and the acorn squash here. We literally devoured these!
Guys, someone save me. I’ve done literally nothing but play Lego Duplos for an entire week straight. All. Day. Long. Every. Single. Day. There are legos strewn all over my house, its like a death-trap maze to try and walk anywhere. (If you think its funny to see a person step on a lego, shame on you. But, watching my dogs walk all over them is in fact hilarious!). Both girls are completely obsessed. There isn’t even any point in trying to pick them up, either. Because the second they wake up, the second we come back home, the box is immediately tipped over and the legos resume their place. Castles, forts, whole cities are made and destroyed in the space of an afternoon at my house. I love it! Our current play involves Batman (Did you know there is a Duplo Batman?! He’s adorable.) and Cinderella, who are trying to figure out a way to rescue a puppy who has been kidnapped by a T-Rex (because we have to have dinosaurs in there somewhere) and is being held hostage at a castle. Yup, we’re totally in Imagination Land at our house.
