Acorn Squash and Spinach Risotto

Acorn Squash and Spinach RisottoI hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday break! When you get sick of all that leftover ham (delicious in its own right, but how many ham sandwiches in a row can a person eat, really?), make this creamy, decadent acorn squash and spinach risotto. It’s easy and delicious and probably takes less effort than forcing yourself out of your jammies to go get carryout would.

Guys, I’ve been out of the game too long with the recipe posting. Life has been hectic, but when is it not, really? I’ve got way more interests than there will ever be hours in the day to accommodate even a fraction of them, at least while I still have to spend my weekday hours making my living as a cubicle rat in Corporate America (until this blog hits it big, of course! :P). I had even gotten so lazy with my routine over the past few months that while I was still creating recipes, I was forgetting to write them down. It was my fairly typical “It’s 11 p.m. on a Tuesday night and I have to haul ass to bed and I’ll remember this until I write it down tomorrow” M.O. – but then I was completely forgetting to write the recipe down until weeks later, when I wanted to post it! Yeah . . .. Needless to say, I’m in the process of remaking two recipes I’ve already shot photos for to make sure I’m not recalling the ingredient ratios incorrectly. Here’s to dropping lazy habits in 2016!

But you know what’s great about this macaroni and cheese? I don’t need to remember anything. Because yeah, that’s the mark of a great macaroni and cheese, as my mother taught me: it’s best with no measuring involved. OK, yeah, it kind of sucks when you make the best macaroni and cheese of your life and then you have no idea how to recreate it. But that’s part of the fun!
