This is one of the beauties harvested from the garden a few weeks ago. A Blue Hubbard squash. It grew on a trellis and had to be supported by a sling made out of pantyhose. I watched over it like a hawk and babied it all summer long. This squash made the best pie I have ever tasted. A sprinkle of nutmeg over the top before it went into the oven made it taste even more delicious. If any of you are wondering why I make such a big deal out of food, stay tuned to learn why baking and cooking are such sacred activities. I'll definitely be writing about that too. There is so much to reclaim in the most common of things... Please join me as we rediscover why food speaks to us in such a big way. It is part of the Human story.
