Baked acorn squash

Happy Monday!  I just love holiday weeks!  I came into work this morning to a cube full of boxes.  Instead of tackling my Inbox I tried to figure out how to reorganize my new space.    I have to say, I enjoy moving into new places and trying to organize. I always tell myself that I’ll be more organized, I almost never am!  However, this time is different since I have a pretty sweet view!(those are mountains behind the branches.)  IMG_1640
Breakfast was rushed because of a morning meeting and the unpacking!  I had the usual.  A mix 1

My meeting this morning was super interesting.  One of the topics raised was that the jury is out still on if being overweight (BMI under 30) is a health concern.  There is a school of thought that health concerns aren’t raised until an individual falls into the obese range and that it is still healthy to be overweight. 

After my morning meeting I had an apple.

Since the sushi last night was a bit disappointing I had to get more.  I also got some low sodium soy sauce (not pictured).

This hit the spot.  I really enjoy this roll and the soy sauce and wasabi mixture  totally made me tear a little!  Perfection! 

Dinner was ready soon after I got home and was so satisfying.

This is totally satisfying and I can’t believe I never had Acorn squash before (that I can remember)!  I spent so long being so closed minded to squash.  What a mistake.  (mom-this does not mean I’ll try zucchini-they are NOT the same!)

What foods have you prematurely judged and realized that you liked?
