i chose the Chorizo & Butternut Squash with Penne dish. i heart squash. i heart chorizo. what a combo! however, my local Giant did not have chorizo, and i was not in the mood to hunt some down. i settled for the spicey Italian sausage instead. i hope it's ok!
i also used angel hair pasta instead of penne. i have quite an inventory of pasta at home already and i thought had some penne. no dice. great. two rules broken right off the bat.
regardless, the dish was delish. the combo of the sausage and squash is phen-nom! i had two bowls. oink oink much? the dash of lemon juice added something extra and the parsley made it all seem brighter. i made my roommate have some (again, this happens when you live with me!) and she enjoyed it too.
the rules say that this has to be done by the 24th, which is a week away but i have two other food events to focus on and a bday custard request, as well as a hippo to crochet. i hope it's ok that i'm posting so early.
i'm curious to see what abby decides to make. i didn't realize i'd get such a kick out of all this! :) won't you join in the fun?
