I commented to Rick last night, "I love cooking squash!  It comes with a snack inside [i.e. the seeds, which toast up quickly] to tide you over while you wait for it to cook!"

This is such a huge change for me I can't even properly express it.  "I love cooking squash"?  Two years ago, I never would have said those words.  Didn't like squash, didn't know how to cook it, wasn't sure I wanted to change either of those things.  So CSA as immersive vegetable therapy has been a win, at least for squash.  Maybe next year I'll get better at lettuce.

At any rate, last night I cut open an acorn squash, toasted the seeds for pre-supper snack (nom!) and then set the squash halves to bake.  Meanwhile I chopped up a few sausages and cooked them, chopped up some onions, shallots, garlic, bell pepper and kale and cooked them in some chicken broth until the kale was done, and chopped up a firm pear and sauteed it for a few minutes in a little butter.  Mixed all of that together, stuffed the squash with it, and put it back in the oven for a few minutes with a topping of grated parmesan cheese.  mm.  mmm.
