What’s for Dinner?
Boy, Hood River Organic grew a lot of spaghetti squash this season. And I am the lucky recipient… yippee! They are such a fun vegetable, with their “noodles” of squash. The key to not getting stuck on “what the heck do I do with spaghetti squash?!?” is to treat it like any other winter squash. Dish it up with some butter, salt and pepper; layer it into a veggie lasagna; highlight it as a baked potato option; toss it in nearly any winter soup. Beyond the squash, I’ve got my hands full with eleven different vegetables this week – amazing that this is the winter growing season in Oregon!
