Beet, Dandelion and Grass-Fed Beef Stuffed Acorn Squash
Right now I’m sitting in Richmond, Virginia for a wedding weekend. The weather man predicted a mix of rain and clouds, but it is gorgeous and sunny here! Everything is green and spring is in the air. It’s the perfect kind of weather to enjoy a day in the park soaking in the sun followed by this beet, dandelion and grass fed beef stuffed acorn squash recipe, before closing out the night, wrapped in a sweater, gazing at the night sky.
Those kinds of days feed the soul and make life worth living. But they feel better if your loose ends are neatly tied from the week beforehand. Mine are not. I have recipes I want to share, work issues I want to wrap up, overdue tax information to gather, and some things to do for our rental. Considering this airport bar has no outlet and my computer is dead… I’m thinking those things will have to wait until Monday. ??
I will leave you with this awesome recipe, perhaps for days when you have a lot of to-dos, but choose to enjoy the day and be present in the moment, enjoying the important things.
I made these a few weekends ago in our mountain house. J had a bachelor party and I was spending the entire weekend cooking and taking photos, relaxing and taking in the scenery. It was beautiful and peaceful and I wish you the same type of weekend on this beautiful spring day!
I love that you used the beet greens and stems in this dish! I hate when I see people throw them away, they’re so delicious! Since I’m vegan, I would cut the meat and double the veggies, I bet it would be so delicious!
I agree! I’m all about using the whole veg. We have enough food waste as it is… and the greens have so many nutrients. I also recommend this with portabellos instead of the ground beef for a vegan option. ??
I'm Alicia and I used to go through life thinking gut bloat, aches, indigestion, migraines, and common colds were normal. It’s hard to understand you feel bad when that's the baseline you've known forever. My world changed in so many amazing ways once I started fueling my body with real foods. And that can happen for you too!
Health and wellness starts in the kitchen, but we shouldn't have to give up pancakes for rice cakes or eat a strict diet of green juice and kale salads (though I love both). I want to make healthy, real food the norm and I want it to taste good!

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
