Sounds like a hobby I should start.

Our stuffed acorn squash turned out quite tasty. I ended up using black rice, apples, sausage, celery, walnuts, dried cranberries, and just a pinch or two of curry powder to make the stuffing.

Glad to see another home winemaker here.

I agree about it being an inexpensive way to keep the cellar full. DW and I used to spend a lot of money on wine back when we were younger. When I tell people I can make my own wine now for sometimes less than $1/bottle it usually makes people take notice.

Haven't tried to brew beer yet. I've never been a big beer drinker myself, though during the summer I might pop one open on a hot day. But I have a lot of beer-drinking friends, so I'm sure any that I made would get used up.

I really like the addition of sausage to your stuffing It sounds so good.
You made a sweet potato eater out of me, maybe you'll make a squash eater out of me, too

That looks sooooo tasty. What is that pile of beautifully browned meat?
