Wahooo....this is my one-hundredth post! :) And it's about a stuffed acorn squash. Hmmmm. Too bad it couldn't be about some crazy-decadent cake or something. Oh well.

Anyway, Wednesday was a rough day. Four classes, back to back, 8am-3pm with a two-hour exam from 1-3. Niiiiice. Welcome to grad school. So, of course, I couldn't come home and study after a day like that....even though there was plenty of work to do. Instead, I
proceeded to go on a four hour baking and cooking spree. And was it a good time or what. The bag of apples in the fridge morphed into apple crisp and three mini-loaves of apple bread, and my zucchini and acorn squash turned into that lovely thing pictured above.

I did not plan on making stuffed acorn squash, and I had already begun to roast the zucchini and squash separately in the oven. It was then, my friends, that I had an epiphany. There was barley in the cupboard and a roll of ground Italian "sausage" in the fridge. Sooo, why not mix the barley,
cooked sausage, and zucchini together and stuff them squashes? It was a brilliantly delicious idea.

And this is totally unrelated, but my roommate I just finished up a food science lab: biscuits and chocolate cake:

And, of course, I decided that the chocolate cake needed to be amp-ed up with a smothering of peanut butter and chocolate chips. Mmmm, yay for carbs.

That cake looks too good to be true.
Happy 100th :)
