A little reminder of what miniature green things look like for your Monday.

When life gives you overripe bananas that you can’t finish because you’re busy eating all the Thanksgiving leftovers, it’s time to get to mixing.

Thanksgiving Dinner Alternative? Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

That is the actual name of the recipe, and it is the truth.

It’s already, like, cute and genius to bake a whole pumpkin, but then to stuff it with crusty bread, copious amounts of melty cheese, crispy bacon, savory sausage, sage, thyme, kale, apple chunks and toasted walnuts??

Literally GET OUT.

You pluck off the top of the wobbly pumpkin, and it’s just like, “Who cares about anything other than this right now? My troubles have flown.”

And then you dig into it, and everyone just sits in silence because the emotions are profound and overwhelming.

Also, my friend made a deliciously sweet, smoky butternut squash soup, and it was divine.

Consider making this gluten free, replacing the bread for lentils, as I did. You can use any combination of stuffing ingredients, too. They are all magic! An alternative to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner?

May you heartily enjoy.

Thankfully,

I have been waiting for years to buy a vintage Coach bag.  You can find them all over for like $20 at vintage shops, but $8 at a garage sale was finally at my price point. LET’S CELEBRATE.
