Wednesday, September 15, 2010 Is That A Delicata Squash In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?
Today, after my five-hour cooking class ran an hour over, I went to the Farmers Market in a total food fog. I haven't thought a bit about what I'm cooking this week. I'm so consumed with school and homework and reading and it's only 15 days in!
I wandered into the market with no idea, no plan and no energy. Walking around I picked up a pepper, some string beans, Wild Flower Honey, Celeriac and a Delicata Squash.
Back in the day (which day I'm not sure) folks ate them babies whole, stuffed, skin and all. Winter Squash are some of my favorite things. Their varied shapes, sizes and colors turn me on and into the setting in of Fall. Goodbye, Summer Fruits. I shall miss you.
Tomorrow I'm gonna stuff these babies up with some meatballs, string beans, roasted pepper sauce and cheese. Why not?
What's your favorite way to eat Winter Squash?
Bang on, my peeps!
