I bought a special squash from the SonHarvest Pumpkin Patch that was advertized as good for roasting the seeds. They were absolutely right!!! They made the best roasted seeds I have ever made!!! I just cleaned them up, tossed with olive oil, seasoned and roasted in the oven about 20 minutes. Yummo!! I must plant some of those squash next year!
I have lots of winter squash this year, so I have been finding all kinds of ways to fix it. So far, my favorite item was parker house rolls made with squash - they are so tender and light. Jim liked a squash brulee tart - kind of a cross between pumpkin pie and custard. Of course, any recipe for pumpkin can be substituted with winter squash. My favorite is Butternut - I think it has the best "meat", not stringy or bitter. I also grew a "sweet potato" Acorn that is mighty tasty.
I just ordered a local turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm sure it will be fab! It will be served beside all the rest of my home grown veggies.
