Let me tell you a little story.
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s fall, which means it’s time for more winter squash than you ever could know what to do with ever. And even though we knew that, Scott and I went to the Greenmarket last weekend anyway. Completely unsurprisingly, some acorn squash called out to us, like sirens from the deep. They said:
“Oh Nate and Scott, look at us! We’re green and cute and squash and you want to eat us immediately! Buy us now!”
And um, how could we resist that?
So, of course, we bought one. And it was small and cute, but we weren’t quite sure what to do with it yet, so it sat on our counter for a couple days.
UNTIL! I came across this recipe on the sassy blog “The Other Side of 50.” I didn’t have quinoa, but I had some couscous and some apple sausages lying around. Inspiration struck and I thought that stuffing the squash with the couscous and sausage would be amazing.
