pancakes, pears, and a pumpkin.

(Okay, it was a red kabocha squash. Also known as a Japanese pumpkin. I made the alliterative choice.)

Cranberry pancakes for lunch. (Fresh cranberries, from my favorite little farm/market hybrid.)

Red kabocha squash, stuffed with a mixture of local sausage, kale, onions, mushrooms and rice, and topped with some shredded jack cheese.

A double batch of pear crisp, made with pears from the tree in D and T’s yard. I’m warming this up for breakfast.

And there’s this guy. Leg up in hopes of a belly rub. Sometimes he just lays like that.

No knitting to share, folks. Despite deadlines of the knitting variety fast approaching, the work pile won out yesterday. Grading, reading, corresponding with students — the productive hours disappear. Hoping to find time to curl up with my needles today.

  1. yum yum. i had squash last night too, i stuffed half a squash with some leftover risotto- so good! but mine was a butternut and there’s not really space to stuff enough in.

    i must try making fruit crisp, it’s not really something we eat here (we’re all about the crumble, and i think they’re similar but not quite the same).

    hope you do find the knitting time today.

  2. The stuffed to the brim goodness of that pumpkin looks so delicious. Hope you have a great day and find some time to knit.

  3. that looks delicious! I traded in cooking time for knitting time and made do with noodles tonight ;-) Hope you’ll find some time, too! Have a good day!

  4. mmmm, those squash look incredible, as does everything else. You eat well, Madam Rooster. ;-) Good luck with the work load!

  5. Yummy stuff! I know how you feel about school work trumping knitting, it happens too often to me too! I made a good dinner tonight but ate it without photographing it :()

  6. Do you do delivery?
    Good luck finding some knitting time! It makes everything better.
