Wild Rice Delicata Squash Gratin

I’m still having trouble understanding the Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton thingy.

I’m also perplexed about when and how Nene is going to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta.

I’m having trouble deciding what two (that’s it?!) pies I’ll make for Thanksgiving. SO MANY OPTIONS!

One thing I’m not having trouble with is how much I love delicata squash (and this gratin).

Delicata squash is maybe my favorite type of squash. Do you wanna know why?! Because I don’t have to peel it!

One less step, man. When I first thought of putting rice in a gratin, I’m not gonna lie, part of me thought it might end up, well, scary looking. but I think it turned out a-ok! I thank the pretty color of the squash and the pretty color of the wild rice.

It’s decadent, yet not too much. It’s delicious and nutty and downright amazing. For the full recipe, head over to SheKnows.

Roasted Broccoli Bagna Cauda with Crispy Shallots

This weekend I accompanied my best friend to look for wedding dresses. When she made the appointments, we both sort of rolled our eyes and shrugged our shoulders. I guess we’re gonna have to do this. Neither of us are super girly so the idea of having to go to a bridal boutique or whatever didn’t sound all that exhilarating…until we got there.

Man, it was way more fun and emotional than I ever thought it was going to be. It was such a happy experience! It made me appreciate all the steps along the way to getting married. It made me happy for her and for me and for her mom, who was so grateful and thrilled to witness every single dress, good or bad.

What did you do?

Are you realizing that Thanksgiving is like a stone’s throw away?! I went to CVS the other day and they just skipped from Halloween to Christmas! JUST LIKE THAT! It’s really intense and aggressive and it’s stressing me out.
