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.

That sounds delicious. We most often do more of a brown-sugar-and-butter kind of squash preparation, but now I want to try something more savory.

And lettuce is alright if you put enough oil, lemon, egg, and parmesan on it...

It's sort of an interesting combination of sweet and savory. Rick found it a little disconcerting (but not so disconcerting that he didn't finish every last bit of it) but I loved it. If it were a snack, it would be chocolate covered pretzels. (Does that make sense?)
