I keep meaning to post and then thinking, 'but what do you even have to say that's important?' And the ball of apathy rolls on and on. Idiot girl.

Hey, so I'm still planning this US thing next year. Why is the country so big? The places I Really Want to See are at the four corners of the US (and then one riggggggght up there, next to Canada - like that's going to happen!) and I have to try and work out a good schedule for that for a time frame of two weeks and a couple of days. I might have to ask you all for guidance or something.

I've been cooking a lot with butternut squash lately. I tend to prefer it to pumpkin, especially for soup. I'm kind of glad that my tastebuds are craving butternut squash soup with chilli in these dark, cold nights instead of chips or something. And now I have this lovely monkfish to cook, and every recipe I know for it is summery and light. I need something hearty, but the BBC and Jamie Oliver and all my favourites aren't inspiring me. Something with root vegetables? I dunno. Hmm.

How are you, my lovelies? What are you up to? :D

I just posted a pumpkin recipe you might like. Found it really brought out the flavour. Could work equally well with squah if you really hate pumpkin.

Monkfish is quite popular in certain Indian curries. That could be quite hearty? I like it really simply en papillote with lemon, ginger, spinach and spring onions myself but I like just tasting the fish. It's a treat for us as it cost like £8-10 for a decent amount so I don't tend to use a sauce with it (similarly sea bass).

Butternut squash and Acorn squash are my favorite winter veggies. I love them baked with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon (along with some salt and pepper). Acorn squash are wonderful baked and stuffed with rice cooked with sultanas.

I'm on the same apathy roll tbh.

I will want to post, and then be all like "But my life is boring and unworthy of LJ chronicling. HAVE SOME CAT GIFS INSTEAD."

I love that you're planning a US trips! They're the best, especially on-the-road ones. But when are you coming to Italyyyy.D: I didn't become Tour Guide for nothing you know!
