We have been enjoying the winter squash as it shows up at our farmer's market as well.
With Halloween over, tomorrow you can pick up pumpkins and winter squash cheaper from those "pumpkin patch" stands. Look for the varieties other than those grown purely for carving: sugar pie, butternut, kabocha, delicata, blue hubbard, etc...
In looking back through my blog I was surprised by the number of recipes using winter squash.
Winter Squash Biscuits
Stuffed Baked Squash
Kabocha Spice Soup
So buy some squash, steam or roast them, puree them and start cooking !!
