How is your Sunday going? Having a decent day?
I was at the farmer’s market yesterday and the good squashes are coming in!
Good squashes are things besides summer squash. I guess there’s something to do with pattypan squashes and yellow squash, and I can enjoy zucchini prepared in several ways. But the cucurbita family truly shines with the winter squashes and they are far superior.
It got me thinking about how fresh winter squashes and apples are my mental trigger for “OMG it’s AUTUMN.” Not pumpkin spice lattes, but that’s really because I don’t drink coffee so they’re not on my menu.
Anyways, this NOT brought to you by my decision to buy a few pounds of Jonathan apples, 2 spaghetti squash, a butternut squash, and a lovely delicata squash. Can you tell I like winter squashes? I’ve already roasted the butternut and delicata and will make a casserole with the spaghetti squash later in the week. 🙂
What foods and drinks tell your brain it’s Autumn?
