There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Just an IDEA!! With the coronavirus and people stocking their homes with TP, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand santizer.... Think about buying an extra wipe container, hand santizer and/or tissue box and donate it to your child's teacher. I'm 100% positive they wouldnt turn it down! Keep in mind I'm sure the school is supplying them with some stuff but a lot of times teachers spend money out of their own pockets for classroom stuff. Remember your child is spending a good portion of their time at school right now, not just at home.

Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

Sharing is caring!

I love Fall and Autumn so many delicious flavors especially squash; spaghetti, butternut, delicata, and acorn squash among a few others. The best part about squash is you can add them too many different recipes; add them as a hidden ingredient, use as an alternative for a grain or starch, and even make a dessert out of them. They are also very easy to prepare as well, which I personally didn’t realize this until a couple years ago, yes they are a little tough to cut but that is normal.

We recently made these Stuffed Acorn Squash with sausage, apples and caramelized onions for dinner and they were DELICIOUS! Sweet and salty! They were very easy to make as well and perfect for that Fall night.

Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the acorn sausage in half, remove the seeds and then place onto the parchment paper open side down. Bake in a preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the tops are tender when pressed down on. Remove from oven and set aside.

While your acorn squash is roasting, in a medium skillet over low heat, saute your coconut oil, onions and a sprinkle of salt and pepper for about 15-20 minutes. Stir every couple minutes and when the onions are a golden brown remove from heat and set aside.

While you’re caramelizing your onions, heat another medium sized pan and brown your sausage. After your sausage is browned add your apples, garlic, rosemary, thyme, pinch of salt and pepper and cook until your apples have soften. Now stir in your caramelized onions and turn off heat.

Fill your sausage mix into your halved squash and arrange back on your baking pan, stuffing side up. Place back into your preheated oven for about 5-10 minutes or until the tops are nice and browned. Let cool a few minutes and serve warm.

Enjoy!!
