I almost cried leaving the farmers market last week.
It was the last one until next June....JUNE!!!
but they do have a smaller market each week at Tony Caputos....I need to find out more about that....anyone know?
Since it was the last market, I let the kids pick out whatever they wanted, and the boy wanted this.
A buttercup squash. I had never heard of it.....but why not try it out?
It was (of course) delicious.
We love squash--it was similar to an acorn squash, and we prepared it very simply.
Roasted Buttercup Squash
Halve and clean the squash.
Slice, and brush the insides with olive oil.
Sprinkle with course salt, cracked pepper, and a little bit of dried sage.
Place on a lined baking sheet and roast in a preheated 425° oven, 30-45 minutes, until fork tender.
We drizzled it with a little bit of the local honey we bought the same night and it was soooooo good.
The kids ate it FIRST. What kids eats their vegetables first?
