Winter Squash, how I will miss thee.

Winter only has a few things going for it – Holidays and a valid excuse to stay inside being high on the list – and it’s also got Winter Squash! A collection of vegetables perfect for savory, for sweet, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert! But even as I’m enjoying strawberries, corn-on-the-cobb and Corona’s on my back patio, I miss the abundance and rich flavor of in-season Winter Squash.

Dear Winter Squash, our inevitable separation looms!

I got Spaghetti Squash last week and cooked up the same meal with them every time, because it was just that delicious! (and my pantry isn’t very diverse.)

I used homemade pizza sauce that my friend Kelsey made. It was so delicious, but I have no idea what she put in it. If she shares her super-secret-special-Kelsey recipe, I’ll let you know!

Winter Squashes are more than tasty, they’re economical and extremely healthy! They’re about $1-2 each and they feed a few people at least! Different Winter Squashes are high in beta-carotene, vitamins A & C, complex carbohydrates, fiber potassium, etc, etc, etc.
