By Thursday, I was too exhausted to even make a real dinner. Instead, I made...
Friday after work we headed to the grocery for the ingredients for Splattered Apron's Stuffed Salmon, and we happened on the random fall squash. There was all kind of funny-looking squashes, and we picked this guy:
He was quartered, oiled, and tossed in a 350 degree oven for about an hour.
I was surprised that it was kind of bitter and I didn't like it too much. I later searched how to cook it (too late to make a difference) and saw that people recommend butter and brown sugar, which probably would have helped with the bitterness. Maybe next time the baby blue Hubbard comes along!
This weekend we finished stuffing our first batch of wedding invites! (We have a few more that we'll do later, for various reasons.) 114 wedding invites, stuffed and sealed:
We started last weekend with numbering the reply cards (in case people forget to write their name), stamping the reply card envelopes, and stuffing everything but the reply cards inside:
That was actually pretty easy, only took about an hour. Then this weekend, we labeled the envelopes and made sure to match the reply cards with the labels. About 4 hours went into labeling, ribboning, and stuffing into envelopes:
We stamped 3 of them (my mom, his mom, and his roommate) and dropped them off at the post office dropbox, to make sure those arrive ok before we stamp and mail the entire bunch. Assuming those arrive in one piece soon, we will stamp the rest next weekend and drop them at the post office in a week. Can't wait for the responses to start rolling in!
