Let’s talk about squash. With over ten common varieties of winter squash, the options are endless. Soups, stews, baked sides, roasted mains – you name it, you can probably cook it with squash. With the colder weather comes a more limited selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, but squash is here, summer and winter, rain or shine. He’s a steady friend, there in whatever capacity we need him.
The thing is, he’s gotten a bit trendy lately. Suddenly he’s snuck his way into every soup, salad and side dish. Everywhere we look, there he is, dressed up in a new outfit, looking a whole lot more flashy than he used to. At first, it was a good look for him. But it’s November and we miss avocados and tomatoes and we’re starting to wonder if we’re ready to squash the squash.
Tell us, are you?
