It has been many moons since I posted. That is because I am feeling insular, and also because, between Columbus Day and the 19th, I put in an 88 hour work week. Aieee!

After that, I lay down and slept. A lot.

I have been occupying whatever time is not involved in sleeping or working with cooking and making Jeff a mix CD of soul songs. This is all because of him making fun of my twee indie rock tastes. I decided to prove my musical worth by laying some serious funk on him.

In the land of cooking, I recently made an awesome squash pasta thingy. Vegan for those who want it that way, and for everyone else...um, I guess you can add cheese to it?

So --

6 cups of peeled/cubed butternut squash (one big squash will get you there)
2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
5 roma tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded, and diced

olive oil
sage (1/3 cup if fresh, 1 TBS if dried)

12 oz pasta of your choice

Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss the onions and squash together with 1 1/2 TBS of olive oil in big, rimmed baking sheet (a jelly-roll pan). Salt and pepper a bit. Roast for 20 minutes. Get your water boiling for the pasta.

Add the tomatoes and sage into the mix and toss. Put it back in the oven to roast for 10 minutes. Boil the pasta.

Drain the pasta, put back in the pot. Stir in another 1 TBS of olive oil and then the roasted vegetables. More salt and pepper to taste. You can add some shredded parmesan if you like now, but it's not really necessary. It just kind of goops up your stirring spoon.

Yummy, and healthy, and very autumnal!

BTW, Jeff would like you all to know that the Whale on Wheels' name is Fudgie Earnhardt, Jr.
