Listen to my nonsense and Autumn's very good questions here.
To bookend -- today I made sweet and spicy kabocha in the toaster oven. (Pictured: squash smile.) The kabocha was from the 4th Street Co-Op, where you don't have to be a member to shop! I also have a handsome little butternut squash, waiting to be souped, sitting on my counter. How's winter squash season for you?
