Happy Friday.....this seemed like a long week. A very nice thing I did today was finalize my retirement papers at work. All signed and delivered, final dates established and looking forward to a new chapter in my life when I walk out the door in December.
I know I've mentioned the upcoming retirement before but now, filling out those papers and giving my office away makes it so real. Cooking and baking lunch at home is something I am looking forward to very much. Spending all my time with Doug and Aja and planning trips. Yes!
So. Speaking of lunch at home let me share a very simple meal. It's that time of year acorn squash is available and what's easier than chopping one in half and roasting it. This time I added a tablespoon of butter and some maple syrup to melt inside.
As for an accompanying salad, it doesn't get much easier than a Caesar. Lots of toasted breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Yes, I did have tomatoes to toss in but that's just an extra I wanted.
This upcoming weekend I hope to use the slow cooker, make some soup and bread and if the weather is good....sit by a fire. Hope life is good for you too.
