At first we thought it was a pumpkin patch and we were excited, thinking about what a great Halloween the children would have. Then when we saw the fruit was tending towards turning green we thought it was zucchini and we were not so excited (although I was gamely gathering recipes, determined to make the best of what was looking like an enormous crop of zucchini). Today my grandmother-in-law came over and remarked that it looked like spaghetti squash to her and so I looked up pictures of immature spaghetti squash and YES! That's it! So I am VERY excited. Not only does winter squash keep well, but we absolutely adore spaghetti squash.
What a blessing!!!!
My favorite: Quick Turkey Bolognese with Spaghetti Squash
In addition, I found out that we can use the five we already picked and cook them as a summer squash.
We had this recipe for dinner with Savory Chicken with Olives from 1,000 Jewish Recipes
It was SOOO delicious!!!!
