Fall is here and so is the fall produce!This year I have decided to try out at least two new varieties of squash. I finally realized a couple years back that there was more to squash than zucchini and pumpkins. Acorn squash was delicious, even if I had to chase it across the counter and almost lose a couple of fingers. At Central Market yesterday I picked up several carnival squash, modeled by my lovely daughter. I think I will attempt those bad boys on Friday. I also picked up some lovely grapes and beets, all while answering 103 questions from my daughter. I know it was 103 questions because I used my handy new Tally app. Tonight I made roasted cornish hens and roasted beets with goat cheese. I threw in some tiny yellow tomatoes for fun and because my son thinks they’re like candy. Considering all the real candy we still have from Halloween I think it’s a good change of pace. I have a new love for beets, especially with goat cheese and the kids are learning to tolerate them, dare I say, even kind of like them? Although my boy announced “Great, now I’m going to have red poop.” Tomorrow it’s bolognese and pappardelle pasta, I enjoy cooking much more in the fall when the temps are finally starting to cool down.
