Winter Squash Overload!
Today I decided to break down the squash and now I only have the two butternut squash, the bright orange squash and the hubbard squash left. I started with the pumpkin...I cooked it in the microwave, scooped out the flesh, pureed it in the food processor and have 5 cups of pumpkin puree to use for pies or future baked goods. I also have pumpkin seeds which Meghan is thrilled about!
I then cut all the other squash in half, scooped out the seeds and threw them on a baking pan and put them in the oven until they were cooked. This I also pureed and will use in soups, pies, muffins, breads etc for the rest of the winter.
I'm sure I will be getting more squash...I'll have to find a few more recipes...
