Somedays you just can’t win…

Today it rained, the wind blew, the wood stove pipe leaked, and I cooked outdoors anyway. On the menu were game hens and some more of the acorn squash.


I figured I’d give the family a chance to enjoy the maple syrup-brown sugar acorn squash and some game hens, which I hadn’t cooked in quite awhile. The final verdict? The kids didn’t like the squash and the wife wasn’t happy with the color of her game hen. Something about the reddish tint that made her mistake smoke coloring with uncooked meat. It wasn’t; I verified that using the meat thermometer.

All I have to say is “let them eat broccoli”…
