Stuffed Acorn Squash

This year we started new Christmas traditions!  My brother & sister-in-law just built a new house that is large enough to accommodate the whole family, so my parents & younger brother came up to join us this year for the holidays.  What a relief to not have to drive to both sets of parents, like I usually do.  Mom asked me to make a hearty veggie side dish to complement the traditional turkey, since she knew that I would probably not be having any turkey. I decided to try to recreate a wild rice stuffed acorn squash recipe that I had invented last Thanksgiving, but had not written down the recipe.  I encountered some issues at the grocery store because I wasn’t able to go shopping until the last minute and had slim pickings, so I had to get some green acorn squash which are much larger in addition to my smaller acorn squash.

Morocan Oil vs Argan Oil

I did a post about Argan Oil plus Moringa Oil and thebrookcook asked me about the differences between Moroccanoil and Argan Oil. That small 0.5 fl oz bottle of oil from CHI lasted me about a month and I can see dramatic differences in my hair.  People have been asking me if I got a hair cut or colored my hair.  I did neither!  My hair just looks different.  It is healthier and shinier.  I can tell that it is less static-y, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to start using a product in my hair.  I haven’t gotten my hair cut in 8 months, gasp!  I think it may be time for a trim.
