Acorn Squash for a Fresh Side Dish from From My Carolina Home

I have one more new recipe for you for an easy side dish that will freshen up the turkey or ham leftover dinners.  It is nice enough for a special meal, like Christmas eve, but easy enough for a Tuesday night meal too.  Acorn squash is easy to cook and has a fresh squash flavor, mild yet not sweet like a butternut.

An acorn squash is usually green, but one with a bit of orange is OK.

Cut the squash in half, using the natural contour makes that easy.

Inside it looks a lot like a pumpkin.

Late November Garden from From My Carolina Home

There is always something going on in the garden, even in late November when the air is chilly.  We’ve had several dark and overcast days, lovely rainy days to stay inside to sew or stitch or read.  Then we get brilliantly sunny days that set the colors in the trees to light.  While most of the leaves are now gone on the deciduous trees, there are still some left to enjoy.  The birds are coming around a lot now too, so get ready for a long and picture heavy post.

Thanksgiving Ideas to Try Something New from From My Carolina Home

With the holiday coming next week, preparations here are well underway.  Decorating, cooking and sharing time with friends and family is the heart of the holiday.  With over five years of posts, sometimes it is good to revisit past posts with holiday ideas.  In looking back, I realized I’ve not done a post on stuffing/dressing.  I’ll have to get some good photos this year for one on the many variations I like to do. This one was made with sourdough bread, onions, bacon and mushrooms with sage and oregano, a recipe from Bon Appétit from at least ...

Veal (or Turkey) Meatballs with Basil Cream Sauce from From My Carolina Home

Ready for a delicious dinner that is on the table in under half an hour? I have had this recipe ready to go for some time, but just haven’t had the time to get to it.  It is so good that I’ve made it several times already and My Sweet Babboo thinks it is a winner.  With only 15 minutes to prep, and 15 to cook, it comes together really fast.  I really like the delicate flavor of veal for these meatballs, but I know veal is expensive, and I don’t buy it unless it is a ...

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving from Clever Chameleon

Happy Thanksgiving table top quilt with turkey at Clever Chameleon

Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful holiday for the coming weekend

Australians as a whole don’t do Thanksgiving, although many traditional churches do have a low-key harvest thanksgiving service in our late summer or early autumn. But I like thankfulness, and since it’s likely impossible to indulge in too much thankfulness, the Chameleon and I are getting on the Canadian bandwagon today. Happy Thanksgiving for the weekend and Monday, Canadian friends and everyone!

It wasn’t until last year that I became aware that Canada has its own Thanksgiving Day, separate from the American occasion. And then ...

Talking Turkey: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Talking Turkey colour board at Clever Chameleon

October’s Island Batik Challenge is “Top It Off”

Top it off button for October's Island Batik challenge

My challenge as an Island Batik Ambassador in October is to: create a holiday runner or table topper, any size; must include appliqué. But don’t you think that’s a bit too easy for the Chameleon? He’s a challenge veteran by now!

So, let’s make it a proper challenge then. Purely self-imposed. Hmmm…… How about also: use the Accuquilt Cleopatra’s Fan die supplied in the July ambassador supplies box; make it juvenile; and choose a culturally irrelevant holiday. That should Top it right Off!

Pieced Cleopatra's Fans blocks at Clever Chameleon for turkey feathers

Hahaha. Sure! Luckily ...
