A Very Brady Hodgepodge

1. What's one thing you learned in September?

That sauteed spinach isn't so bad, but I prefer spinach raw in a salad.

2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash... what's your favorite squash? What's your favorite way to prepare your favorite squash?

Probably acorn squash, although I haven't fixed it in years. I'll have to get some this fall. If I remember correctly, I cut it in half (which is a feat in itself!) and clean out all the seeds and gunk, cook it facedown on a foil-lined cookie sheet for a while, then turn it right side up and put some brown sugar, raisins, and nuts in the "well" and bake it some more. It's a great fall dish.

I've wanted to try butternut and spaghetti squash but haven't been brave enough to figure out how to pick it out and cook it.

3. The older I get the_______________________________.

. . .more I long for Jesus to come back.

4. What's your favorite television theme song ever?

The Brady Bunch. Although The Addams Family is a close second.

5. What do you wish you'd spent more time doing five years ago?

Not even going to try to figure this one out. I really try not to live in the land of regret.

6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?

Since I'm trying to get back into nursing due to having two kids in college, probably scrubs.

7. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts cartoon was introduced to the world. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?


8. Insert your own random thought here.

Going to YouTube to get theme songs is dangerous. LOL It's too easy to get sidetracked by all the fun clips from the old classic TV shows!

If you like acorn squash you should like butternut squash. You can cook it the same way. Just slice down the middle, and scoop out the seeds. I usually put mine in a pyrex dish with an inch or so of water and then cover with foil and bake for about 40 minutes or until tender. Yum!
Have a great week :)

I've never tried acorn squash. I always liked reading Blondie in the Sunday paper.

How did I ever forget about "The Brady Bunch"? I watched it all the time! "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!" :) I really need to expand my horizons when it comes to squash. I've only tried yellow and zucchini.

I fix acorn squash the same way, with butter and honey in the center. I discovered spaghetti squash a couple of years ago, and enjoy it with spaghetti sauce. Also love squash casserole. So all in all, I think I'm a fan of squash!!
Did you ever see any of the old Blondie movies they made in the 40's? (before my time, but watched them on TV years ago.)

I'm loving everyone's TV show theme music answers! You picked two good ones! It seems now a days TV doesn't emphasize the theme music like it used to...and there aren't lyrics to sing along.

You are so right about Youtube! So many great theme songs, I've been singing all day : ) Good luck getting back into your profession!
