An Ancient Thanksgiving Recipe

SquashAlthough many of my co-workers did not believe I made the delicious dish known as squash stuffing, I will still post the recipe here as requested. I know what some of you are already thinking, “he’s like some sort of Renaissance Scrum Master.” Who am I to argue? I coach agile software development teams, write some code on occasion, invent new ways of doing software development, create new lines of clothing, and now cook fine dishes such as squash stuffing. The best part is that it’s all in a day’s work.

Without further ado, here’s the recipe for squash stuffing. Enjoy!

  • 1-1 1/2 lbs. sliced & steamed yellow & green squash
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 1/2 cups Pepperidge Farm or Brownberry stuffing mix (not cube type)

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

Saute onions and grated carrot in margarine. Put the sauted onions and grated carrots in a bowl and add sour cream, cream of chicken soup, squash and then mix together. Next add 2 cups of stuffing mix and mix together. Put in baking dish (the Hoover family has a special dish made of granite, quartz, and rare jewels in the shape of a hobbit’s head – good luck finding one.)  Top with 1/2 cup of remaining stuffing mix.

Bake for 35-40 minutes just until hot and delicious.

P.S. One of the developers at work commented the other day that my recently injured ankle is likely a result of how large my head has become; i.e. supporting all that weight can’t be good for my ankles. I’m guessing this post will only add to support that opinion. Such is the life of the Renaissance Scrum Master.
