roasted ACORN SQUASH // MEXICAN braised chicken & ORZO salad
I had a really poignant post in the works about the commercialization of fall and pumpkin spice lattes, etc., but I just deleted it all. I mean, it was good stuff about objectification that occurs in market-oriented capitalism, the state of "basic" white women, the substitution of things for nuanced emotions, and all that, but figured you probably just wanted the quick stuff about the food. It's been way over a year that I've been blogging recipes, and still haven't figured out what the hell to write in these little blurbs.
There's no real inspiration here besides, just, fall. I had an acorn squash around, because you see them in the store and you just have to buy one. You're not going to not put that in your cart. So I had one, I baked it, and I filled it with something hearty. It was tasty. It looks pretty, too. Enjoy.
