Behold a Georgia September harvest!
Chris has started to notice that our apples are disappearing faster than they used to. He has correctly deduced that it is because I’m feeding them to horses I like.
Check out the day-glo winter squash!
I think it’s an orangetti squash – an orange spaghetti squash . But I prefer to think of it as a cartoon dinosaur’s egg. (I totally should have taken a picture of this squash with the chicken eggs. Damn.)
All of our winter squash is collecting in our winter squash den – the hutch in the corner of the kitchen. We’ll start digging into it soon. My go-to recipe for squash that can’t be peeled (aka, not butternut) is to bake it in the oven for 30 minutes and then slice it open, drizzle with olive oil or butter and maybe some spices. Then put it back in for 15 minutes or so to get a little more done.
Speaking of spices…
I’ve never gotten fresh ginger before. I’m not sure if I can get through this much, so I make break it up and share with my neighbors.
And because it’s still summer in these here parts…
I cooked the green beans Southern-style. These are always a big hit and go with anything else you can put on a table.
The tomatoes are being cooked into sauce as I type for Chris’ birthday supper.
Got some other fun stuff, too…
The sprouts can make a passable afternoon snack. Most of the time I’m just looking for something crunchy. A handful of these will get me through. Especially if I cut up a little apple to go with them.
Can’t wait to try the strawberry jam! Strawberry is my favorite. Maybe I’ll pick up some English muffins somewhere soon. Mmmm….
Chris and I have been watching Twin Peaks via Netflix by mail. So we definitely need this popcorn. That show is crazy and perfect for staring at fixedly while shoving popcorn into your mouth.
Enjoy your food!
