Gooey, hearty, and decadent, this Butternut Squash Bacon Baked Gnocchi skillet is impressively simple and undoubtedly delicious dish.
Hi, friends. I hope this week has been treating you well. Besides, it’s almost the weekend, so please take it easy (And make this Butternut Squash Bacon Baked Gnocchi for you Saturday night). Please excuse me as I am going to keep my thoughts simple and short today.
You might now my great news. Thank you for your congratulations on my relocation. You have asked me quite a few questions that I would need a long post to answer them. Surprisingly, the most common kind of your questions and remarks fell under the category “Animal issues”.
I think I should get this covered as you sounded concerned.
I have not met any coyotes yet!
Indeed, having visited Halifax a few times before, I noticed there weren’t many animals here. Now, having been in Halifax for 1,5 weeks, this looks like the obvious fact.
There are just a few examples:
I have not seen any squirrels which are ubiquitous in North America in the streets. I had seen a decent number of ground squirrels when I visited the city on the previous occasions, but they inhabited in the parks and forested areas. However, I haven’t encountered any of them in the city.

As per Andrey, he has not seen any skunks since 2016. I confirm this fact; however, having a night walk once, we found some evidence…mmmm…in the air of their existence. Anyway, they look like very shy skunks.
As per Andrey, he has seen raccoons a couple of times. This is good as I like raccoons.
I have not personally spotted, but I know finding a little snake in the parks and even streets can be very possible. This is not good as I am not a huge fan of snakes.
And the most important thing is that I have not found any signs in the parks alerting about coyotes. So there’s little possibility that I won’t meet any of them in the city. Isn’t it sad? :)
Don’t be sad, though. There’s no reason to be sad when you have this Butternut Squash Bacon Baked Gnocchi skillet. It’s packed with flavors and hearty ingredients such as butternut quash pure, onions, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, pine nuts, and sage. I know sharing such a decadent dish in January might not be the right thing, but I made it a long time ago (before the Christmas season), so I am not guilty.
