Squash Time

June 26, 2009 at 9:05 am

Could I go out with Mother and Daughter last night.  To downtown Oak Park’s “Thursday Night Out.”  No.  I had to eat some of the much food occupying the bungalow*.  And guess what I just located.  Amidst all of the lettuces, fennels, carrots, pea variations and such, is one big, beautiful, fully edible spaghetti squash.  It’s especially funny (to me I guess) to have this, as nearly all of our squashes in storage failed, likely from last year’s late summer rains.  Since I do not think of spaghetti squash as an especially heavy plant, it should make for a nice alternative one of these nights.

*Was all psyched to post about my Thai style salad last night until I was cowered by the gorgeous-ness of Editor-in-Chief Morowitz’s CSA salad.  My salad did not even look that good live.
