Yes, I’m still finding new ways with my never-ending butternut squash.
But first – we have actual, visible, easy-to-see proof that we worked last week.
Because he had to cut the sheet rock panels in half to get them upstairs, they were missing the beveled edge needed for a smooth finish. Paper seemed the logical choice.
It was just a little tricky working around the beams – but, hey, we need a challenge occasionally.
The light paper actually has a thin blue stripe to it, as well as some mottling.
Now that the walls are done he’s starting the trim. You can see a bit of it on the ceiling.
More in the hall – he had to cover the beam joining the 2 ‘ceilings’.
Now that the walls are done, he can start the floor. Since he has to finish all the boards before laying them, that will take awhile – allowing him to finish the trim, the other ceiling, the bathroom, and start the second bathroom.
Oh, and plaster the walls in the second bedroom.
I so worry about him becoming bored with so little to do…..
In my desperation to continue to be creative with my butternut squash I think I have come up with one of the best recipes of the season….
The recipe, Butternut Squash & Rice Gratin, has been updated, nutrition information added, and re-posted here: Butternut Squash & Rice Gratin.
This was seriously delicious – even the next morning, standing in the fridge, eating the last few bites cold.
