Spaghetti Squash & Sausage

It has finally happened… the day has arrived! My Hutchinson family from Iowa is in town! I am running around like a wild woman trying to get everything ready. It feels like a mad rush! These tasks were never this difficult before the baby… having a 9 month old has proven challenging. If it wasn’t for my quick and easy spaghetti squash & kielbasa sausage I would have run out of energy by now.

The Iowa Hutchinson family derives from my Uncle Mike. Uncle Mike was raised by my Great Grandma Hutchinson, he is her grandchild, my mother’s brother. I know that Uncle Mike has so many memories of her and now that Bread & With It is established I cannot wait to pick his brain and ask questions of what Great Grandma Hutchinson was like. I wonder if he can still taste the memory of her lemon meringue pie and smell the memory of her homemade bread fresh out of the oven. I know I think about these things all the time. They aren’t my memories but merely the desire to be able to sit in her kitchen. Just once. I wish I could hold those hands that showed the years of hard work and look into the eyes of a woman who loved such a big family.

For as long as I can remember Uncle Mike and his wife have brought their two daughters all the way from Iowa to visit us in the Portland Metro area.  When we were little it was a simple and small get together. The four of us, the four of them and our three uncles. This year there are 30 of us! Yes… 30! This family has definitely been blessed with many… many little ones.

So do you see now… why I am running around working hard to prepare? How am I to fit 30 people into my house? Where will we all sit? These are all things that are coming together as I go. When the dust settles though… the only thing that matters is we are together. The Hutchinson family lives strong and continues to multiply!

Have a great day! I hope you enjoy spaghetti squash & sausage for a quick and healthy flavorful meal! Thank you for following me at Bread & With It!
