I only made enough food for about 2 or 3 people. The ingredients were about as follows:

When the lamb is almost done, slice the zucchinni:

Remove the lamb and zucchini with a slotted spoon, and SAVE THE PAN DRIPPINGS:

Now it's time for the sauce:

Somehow I forgot to get the next part on camera, but this is what you do:

Gradually add the pan drippings from the lamb to the mixture, while beating till slightly thickened.

Pour the sauce over the lamb and the zucchini:

Onto the squash:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Butternut squash
  • 1 Acorn squash

The following ingredients are for each squash:

  • A bit more than 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • About 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 chives, cut into small pieces
  • A generous heaping of toasted breadcrumbs

Method

Cut the squash in half, cutting the butternut lengthwise:

Scrape out the seeds and fibers, and season with salt and pepper:

Fill a roasting pan about 1/4 inch deep with water, put the squash in, cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 450 degrees for 35-45 minutes:

When finished, they should look like this, and be very easily pierced with a knife:

Now, scoop out the flesh of the butternut and put into an electric mixer:

Add the sour cream, paprika, chives, salt, and pepper:

Mix until well blended, and put back into one of the squash halves. Sprinkle breadcrumbs generously on top:

Repeat the process with the acorn squash:

Now, bake the squash again at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

Serving

Once again, here's the finished squash with the stew:
