It definitely felt like fall today. I’m not sure I’m ready for the type of weather that finds me wearing a sweatshirt with a fleece over it. But ready or not, here we are. Winter squash is definitely here, with several varieties available at our CSA yesterday. All the squash varieties were 3 pounds per item, which made it even more tempting. I always struggle with the arrival of fall and winter produce. It’s exciting to eat something for the first time in six or more months, so I always jump at the chance to take some home, but then I remind myself that I’ll be eating squash and potatoes all winter long and I won’t be so excited about it in February. Still, I couldn’t say no to the first butternut squash of the season.
