A Healthy Fall-Inspired Dinner

Last week when I was at the grocery store, I decided to make an impulse buy.  I actually didn’t realize for the longest time that people cooked with acorn squash.  I thought it was just one of those squashes that people use to decorate with… like a pumpkin or a gourd.  I know, sometimes I wonder how I’ve survived this long in my bubble.

So I went home with my acorn squash and looked up some recipes.  That’s when I came across this Acorn Squash with Kale and Sausage recipe by Epicurious. I don’t think I’ve tried a recipe yet off of this site that I didn’t love.  So I went with it.

I may never figure out how to take pretty pictures of food.  Foodies, tell me your secrets! Please!!!

The recipe turned out pretty good, but I have to be honest… the leftover pumpkin cookies are what really completed the meal.  They just took it up that extra notch to round out the awesome fall flavors.

On a side note – me and the Queen B braved some rain drops and survived a 4 mile run yesterday after work. I really can’t figure out everything that makes for a good run, but every once in a while the stars align and I just feel like I could go all Forrest Gump on the sidewalk.  That was yesterday.  So on that note, gotta keep the momentum going!  Happy Tuesday!
