Dark Days Meal 10: Chicken with Mashed Acorn Squash

Sow cooker chicken and mashed acorn squash...a great meal to come home to.

I’m really embracing my slow cooker these days. It takes a little bit of planning, but it’s nice to come home from work to a dinner that is, at least mostly, ready to eat. I had intended this meal to be for the Dark Days one pot meal challenge. But when I couldn’t fit the acorn squash into the slow cooker with the chicken, I gave up on that. Two pot meals don’t count.

Dark Days week 7: Butternut Squash Soup with Roasted Oyster Mushrooms

This seasonal soup is perfect for cold winter days.

Nothing warms the soul in the like soup. On cold days, I just love making it. I think the smell makes me just as happy as sitting down to eat it.

Last week, the lovely Dark Days organizers released the list of our challenges…a dessert, a vegetarian meal, a one pot meal, and a breakfast. I immediately thought I could easily swing all of those challenges—except the vegetarian meal. I am a meat eater, no getting around it. So I kind of thought I would participate in that particular challenge.
