Slow cooker kielbasa and sauerkraut with skin-on mashed potatoes

I love when I’m home and Mom puts on a CrockPot of kielbasa and kraut for dinner — it’s a Saniga family favorite.

Roasted delicata squash boats with mushrooms, kale and Parmesan cheese

I got out all of the eating utensils, not sure how to go about digging into this squash. The rind is edible, so I tried cutting it into brimming half-moons with a serrated knife.
