Squash


Some friends recently gave us a gigantic neck pumpkin.....sort of the equivalent of a butternut squash on steroids, with a major curl. It is so large that it can barely be contained on our largest cookie sheet for baking.

I figure after it bakes and I clean it out of its skin and mash it and freeze it, I will have enough squash for three or four good Thanksgiving dinners and maybe a couple of evening side dishes as well. We love winter squash with butter and maple syrup. We will not run out any time soon.

I saved some seeds.

Squash sounds scrumptious . . . but that picture . . . I double-cicked it . . . it's truly lovely.

I'm with Cathy on this one. Glad you have the squash and all that...but the picture! I love it. I studied it for quite a while and finally figured it out, but it really doesn't need any explanation. It's amazing how you and your camera can turn ordinary things into such pleasing photos.

REv. Paul, I froze most of it for later, but I did enjoy a great big bowlful. It sure was good!

joated, Thanksgiving maybe. lol

Cathy, thanks, Alan and I were out for warblers in the bushes around the house and I just thought that the lettuce looked neat through the window.

NW. thank you, just some plants from outside, through the big window. We were after warblers. lol
