I'm really enjoying winter squash this fall. It is such a good-for-you food, as well as very tasty. A friend told me she eats it raw, so I thought I'd try it, but my little taste ended up in the sink. =)
I just cut it up and steam it, or put it in a dish with some water in the oven (if I have something else baking). Last night, I cut up a squash and put it in the slow cooker on low, and it was ready for breakfast. What a yummy breakfast!
Squash is also a cheap food. Last Wednesday we stopped at a stand on our way to church and I got five squashes, several bell peppers, and a bag of apples all for $5.20. That's a lot of food!
I haven't tried any recipes yet that use squash. I just like to eat it plain with a little butter. However, I'm thinking of branching out and trying something a little different.
One squash I haven't bought this year is spaghetti squash. That is a fun squash to cook. :) I love trying all kinds of different squashes!
