Hello Fall .. Hello Winter Squash

As of yesterday, it is officially Fall.  I am sure we will still have some warm days before the crisp and cool ones arrive and there is still summer produce a plenty. But let's get ready for my most favorite time of year. 

The market had these wild squash for sale. Aren't they crazy? Do you know you can eat them all - even if they are strange looking. 

If you aren't sure how to handle your winter squash, Food $ense has provided us with a Fact Sheet that can teach us everything we need to know to use these awesome vegetables.

Food $ense also has some Farmer's Market Recipes that I am itching to try. First the Winter Vegetable Hash and then the Acorn Squash and Apple Soup.  I seriously have such a love affair with squash in soups. My mom makes a pumpkin coconut curry soup that will warm you to your toes. I love it!  We even ate it one year instead of turkey on thanksgiving. It was the best Thanksgiving in recent years.
