This Italian Sausage Stuffed Butternut Squash recipe is the ultimate comfort food and it’s a complete meal with lots of veggies and protein. It’s also low-carb, gluten-free and paleo-friendly!
I have to confess that these two days without Pierre’s help were tough, but I believe I managed well, especially because Thomas is such an easygoing baby. I could cook, work a bit on my blog and take care of him (play, give food, bath, put to bed), but it isn’t easy and you have to be very organize and determinate to do all this. Ah…. And I can’t forget to say that you need a very good night sleep 😉 Just another thing you need in order to have a very productive day is to have a great meal that fills you with good nutrients and energy.
