As we all look for somewhere to go as Google+ starts to shut down, I've found an excellent place that already exists! It's on MeWe which is a lot like g+. It already has 500+ members.

My buddy +Christopher Gaul went ahead and fired up a G+ Refugees group over at MeWe. If you decide to give it a try, be sure to join here!!

Since Google+ is now officially winding down (much to our annoyance), there are plenty of folks wondering where to go. A few months back, my good buddy +Ryan Toxopeus recommend people check out MeWe. I've decided that I'm going to give it a shot for now. If you enjoy interacting with me, please don't hesitate to add me as a contact there! I'll be sticking around G+ for a good long time, but it's good to have an exit strategy.

Parmesan & Herb Acorn Squash
It smells amazing!!

As part of our Thanksgiving festivities, I'm preparing some Acorn Squash. I've never had it before, but I know I like butternut squash, so I figure this is gonna be tasty.

It's a rather pretty squash, too ... All variegated with cream and dark green, and all in a pleasing shape. It smells like any squash when you cut it up, but once all cooked up with herbs and cheese (parmesan and asiago), it's gonna be sweet, savoury, and aromatic.

The recipe is simple:

1. Cut & gut the squash, then slice in 1cm slices, set aside.
2. In large mixing bowl, add 2-4 tablespoons of melted butter or vegetable oil. I used avocado oil.
3. add about 2 total tablespoons of herbs:
- Oregano, thyme, chives, basil, rosemary, or other savoury herbs ... Go crazy.
4. Add some garlic (powder or fresh, your choice), I used like ... 1 tsp powder or something
5. Add about a half teaspoon of salt & pepper.
6. Add a cup or two of grated Parmesan or Asiago I didn't measure ... I used "a couple hands full".
7. Toss all the squash in the herbs. Toss it like you mean it.
8. Bake it for like half an hour or so at around 350F. I'm using my barbecue. I didn't control the temp.

Boom. Done. Yes, I'm one of those cooks who barely measures anything.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Ping +Bobbi Jo Woods see ... Asiago FTW! LOL.

It's too bad this has to be a thing. It's great, other than giving government mismanagement a get-outa-jail-free card. Still kudos to the Musk foundation.
