Savory Sausage and Winter Squash Kebab

Ingredients:
4 pork, chicken or turkey sausages — sliced thick
1 lb. cubed winter squash (purchase already cubed in bags for convenience if available)
4 Yukon Gold potatoes — cubed
4 large fresh whole beets — peeled* and cubed
fennel — thick sliced
olive oil for brushing
meat thermometer to test sausages if desired

Directions:
Alternate sausage, squash, potatoes, beets, and fennel on metal skewers. If using wood skewers, soak in water first. Brush with olive oil. Place on grill away from direct heat, turning at least once, until vegetables are soft and interior temperature of sausages is 160 degrees. Serves four.

*Peeling beets can be tricky and messy. You can try using a vegetable peeler, or it might be easier to boil them before leaving. Immediately peel skin, let cool, and cube.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
