The Squash That Keeps On Giving

by Meghann on October 28, 2011

Happy Friday before Halloween!!! - You strike me as one of those people who hands out fruit on Halloween.

Does anyone have any big Halloween themed plans this weekend?

I wish I could say Derek and I were heading to some big party this year, but our plans are limited to pumpkin carving, scary movie watching, and 5k running (in costume). Derek is still getting over his cold, so we’re keeping it quiet. Poor guy.

I’ll just have to live vicariously through all of you. πŸ˜‰


My lunch today consisted of (surprise! surprise!) leftovers.


I swear that hubbard squash is never ending. I still have another meal’s worth in the fridge after this!


i took a quarter of the squash out of the fridge and ‘grilled’ it under the broiler with some hummus and cheese. Once the cheese was melted I added the squash to a bed of spinach and topped it with chopped apples and almonds.


It was a very festive fall meal. πŸ˜‰

I’m not really a Halloween person. At a young age, my parents told us we could either get Halloween costumes and go trick-or-treating, or get $25 cash. My sister and I were the pragmatic sort, so it was an easy decision to take the cash. I’m pretty sure my parents were the smartest people ever.

I love the halloweeny color of that squash. πŸ™‚ It’s weird, but I only like apples whole. Or cooked into pie..obvi.

I don’t think anyone ever gave me fruit when I went trick or treating as a kid, but I did have someone give me money! It was only $1, but I was pretty stoked at the time. Maybe they forgot to buy candy. lol

Have you decided on a costume for your 5k yet, or still mulling it over?

Haha, that postcard made me chuckle – my Mum was only just saying today how she thought she may give out grapes! I told her she didn’t want to be that person… πŸ™‚

Halloween is a big celebration for us as Pagans so I am looking forward to the feast, taking a lighted candle through our house to clean it spiritually and reaffirming my vow to walk at one with the earth. We have only borrowed this life and need to fill it. x

We’re not huge Halloween people. I love passing out candy and seeing the adorable little kids!

Are you freaking serious, where did you grow up, did you never go out for Halloween? Halloween is most likely on a week/school night. Omg, how old are you? If one of my friends ever asked me that, I would call them some names I won’t say here.

Ummm… according to the responses I got via twitter, I discovered different neighborhoods/cities have specific rules for trick or treating, so it was a fair question.

mmm….that squash looks so good. I am also trying to get over a cold this weekend. Lots of sleeping in my near future!

I’ll definitely be living vicariously through everyone else this weekend as my work schedule is looking insane! That and due to some health stuff my nights look the same: pain meds, tea, and a book until I fall asleep. HA!

But a 5k costume run sounds fun!!
