Delicata Squash, Stuffed with Sausage & Rice; to tweet or not

I almost forgot to post this.

It was the biggest Delicata that we had. I was saving it until I could convince mon mari that stuffing it was a good idea.

It’s not that he didn’t like the idea but he was really happy with having them roasted and finished with butter, salt, & herbs.

After doing that more than 30 times I thought we could be a little more creative.

The best thing about this recipe is that it takes a smaller version of a skillet dinner and puts it in a sweet winter squash.

Have I mentioned that I like easy?

Delicata Squash, Stuffed with Sausage & Rice

The stuffing is made while the squash bakes, then both are put back in the oven to heat through if needed.

Use your favorite sausage for this – or chicken, leftover turkey, ground beef….
If everything is hot there is really no need to put them back in the oven. I just use that few minutes to clean-up the kitchen….

Do you tweet?

Or should I say… Do you still tweet?

10 years ago (or so) I was moderately active on twitter. I had an app on my desktop that kept me apprised of all of the latest tweets I needed to see. I had a few twitter friends that I regularly chatted tweeted with.

At one point I was even tweeting for money. Periodically, I would be approached to tweet about a product (food or food related / something I would use) and get paid for it.

As twitter got bigger and more popular and more political and nastier I lost interest.

Now I only tweet my blog posts.

I’m debating whether or not I should even stop that – my own, personal, tiny protest as to how the new owner is handling his new toy.

  1. I’m going to be unpopular and say I like Musk. I think he’s a rebel and I think we need that right now. That said, I deleted my twitter account several years ago when it became the cesspool of the internet. Regardless of who owns it, I won’t go back. “Free speech” or no, the internet as a whole has become a nasty place to be with the exception of few places I still frequent. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve gotten too old to have the patience for all of it, but I haven’t any for it anymore. Arguing gets no person anywhere and saying things to someone on the internet one would never say to their face in person is the lowest form of non-human behavior in my book. (rant over)

    I would eat that filling in a heartbeat!! My sister-in-law did her customary sweet potatoes with the brown sugar and butter, fried on the stove until there are dark browned bits of hard stuff, for Thanksgiving. My father-in-law loves them that way. He also loves squash so they do eat a lot of it, but I don’t think they do delicta. I think they mostly do acorn. More because she has no imagination. Her mother did acorn, she does acorn. We had way too much food, quantity wise, which is typical when she cooks. My turkey turned out well considering we transported it to my father-in-law’s house. The brine kept it nice and juicy during roasting. All in all, it was good. Hope your Thursday was everything you wanted it to be 🙂

    • I think Musk has more luck than talent and is a bit too full of himself. Rebels are good if they know what they’re doing lol
      We always planted Acorn but have switched to Delicata now – they tend to be moister and cook in less time… Both features I like. Sound like a nice T-Day. For us – just another day. I do recognize it tho – as the beginning of Christmas. I think I’ll start decorating today. lol

  2. I used to post from Insta direct to Twitter but no more. I no longer have a zot of impetus left to deal with the hoo haa !!!
