I got a butternut squash in my CSA box last week. This is something I've never cooked with before (or even eaten in my memory). I looked up a few recipes and made 2 dishes with it. I made a squash sausage pasta that was delicious with local sausage. And I made butternut squash muffins this morning. They are also delicious. So, I'm pretty impressed with myself! I'm learning how to eat new things.
No butternut squash this week in the CSA box but I did get potatoes and leeks, so we will be having potato-leek soup tonight. Leeks are another thing I've never cooked with before. I also got a head of cabbage which I've never cooked with, I found a few recipes for different kinds of slaws so I'm going to try that. I also got kale, another new one for me. We ate all our swiss chard from last week raw in salad. Can we do the same with kale? I guess I could try cooking some greens although my husband swears he hates cooked greens. I don't think I've ever had cooked greens. I've sure led a food sheltered life!
