I currently have FOUR squashes sitting on my counter. Squashes? Squashs? Squashes’? I have no idea how to say it but I have waaaay too much squash. Especially for someone who doesn’t really *love love* squash. But just likes it.

I will probably bombard you with ten thousand squash recipes (um, I’m definitely not that person that “adds a slice of squash to my salad!” and is happy) this coming week (yes, just this week!), but in the meantime? I totally forgot about these Fall recipes that I made last year. I love posting tons of new recipes, but in reality it means a lot of the great stuff falls by the wayside.

So, while I’m up to my ears in squash, enjoy my favorites. And by “favorites,” I mean that I made them last year and loved them but haven’t even considered them since. I need a new brain.

Oh, oh, oh! Does anyone want to talk about that Friday when… when I spent a good hour in the morning prepping the most perfect batch of mac and cheese for Mr. How Sweet, complete with buttery breadcrumbs and a splattering of freshly grated parmesan that would crisp up just perfectly in the oven when baked… only to come home in the evening and notice that he had already eaten half of the baking dish, unbaked, and… and… microwaved?!


Good. Neither do I.
