One of my favorite things about winter is winter squash. The fact that acorns and butternuts, kobacha, and spaghetti squash are plentiful and cheap is a wonderful thing.
Actually, wait, it’s not one of the things i like about winter, it’s the thing i like about winter. Cold weather and the sun setting at 6 PM — who can stand this? At least i have yummy squash to help me get through the cold* darkness.
The only problem being that the squash are pretty big — one of them is more than Minos and i can eat in one meal. So we chop them in half, and use each half separately.
