How Many Things Can You Make with a Squash?
So, what are your favorite squashes and how do you eat them? Leave a comment to tell me.
My favorites are the winter squash. I really only like the yellow crookneck and zucchini tyoe summer squash (we will be growing a kousa type in the spring). Patty pan squash and I don't get along, and I don't believe I've tried cocozelle. I adore pumpkin type squash, rouge vif d'etamps, small sugar, and butternut squash of any kind, buttercups, cheese, delicata, hubbards, sweet dumpling. I can take or leave acorn squash, they're alright, but I likely won't grow any. Ditto for spaghetti squash.
Our menus this week have been lovely. Sunday we had grilled pizzas with a nice salad, we had our neighbors over for dinner. Monday, we ate leftovers, because I wasn't feeling all that well. Last night we had a kind of cross between a chicken pot pie and chicken and dumplings with dill biscuits cut out and baked on top of the chicken filling. Tonight is the butternut squash soup and a salad with more of those herbed biscuits. Tomorrow is brisket with carrots, onions, peas and potato pancakes. Friday is homemade mac and cheese with some fruit and a salad. Saturday, chili and cornbread. Sunday a pizza party for Alexander's birthday party. More details to come.
