White Pizza with Acorn Squash, Walnuts and Sage

The acorn squash are coming to an end and I’m starting to get creative with the last few.

This as much a guide / idea as an actual recipe. Little puff pastry tarts can be topped with anything and make a great first course.

Make them bigger for a light lunch or smaller to serve with drinks.

Make them red or white or even sweet for dessert.

Puff pastry will keep for a week or so in the fridge and can be frozen and / or re-frozen.

The acorn squash will cook in the microwave in under 5 minutes, cut in half, cleaned, cooked cut-side down until tender.

  • Scoop the acorn squash out of the shell and arrange on cheese.
  • Add walnuts and sage..

That’s all for this day…..

I’m having a dinner party tomorrow night and I’m amazingly unorganized for it. Usually I have lists and timetables and dishes chosen and wine selected……

I don’t.

I have a cake cooling, waiting to be finished and a soup started, waiting for me in the kitchen.

And I still haven’t vacuumed the walls and ceilings (spider webs – ’tis the season)

I won’t bore you with the list of things I have to do tomorrow….

Instead I’ll leave you with one last picture of Marina and Baloo, fighting over Teddy.


Teddy lost.
