maple infused butternut squash and apples

I think I’m going to rename my blog “Everything I Make Looks Like Baby Food but Tastes Delicious”.

That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

When I was younger, I constantly heard the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover”, which is really hard to do when you are a nerdy dork of a reader and don’t have enough time to be frivolously wasting time reading books if you don’t like the cover. I had very high standards for the books I read when I was younger — if they didn’t have the words “Babysitter’s Club” on them, I wasn’t reading them. Or “Babysitter’s Little Sister” had to be on the title. I think the saddest day of my life was when I realized I donated all of my books (read: at least 500) to the public library because who woulda thunk I would become a teacher? Not me with grammar like that.

As I got older, I realized the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” could be applied to many other things besides books. Funny how analytical I got when I got older. I realized it could be applied to things such as oh, I don’t know — boys. Because just because boys were good looking didn’t mean they would be a) smart, b) funny, c) caring, or d) all of the above. It’s a good thing I married a guy who is good looking and all of the above. I just saved my butt there. Or, just because a $3 bottle of wine is, well, $3, doesn’t mean it won’t be a fun night. $3 bottles of wine always make for fun.

Not with a boy. Those two were supposed to be separate examples.

So anyways, don’t judge my squash. Or the fact that I make nothing but squash. Or the fact that I eat food that looks like its meant for children with no teeth. Or elderly with no teeth. Even though you have teeth, you can still enjoy it to the fullest. I swear.

Just beware — you will most likely burn your tongue trying to eat every. last. morsel. that comes out of your slow cooker.

Consider yourself warned.
