Pasta with Summer Squash, Tomatoes & Feta

My summer squash / zucchini have slowed almost to a crawl. Instead of getting 4 or 5 every day, like in early July, I get 1 every 4 or 5 days.

That’s fine… It’s September and I’ve already picked 36 Delicata squash.

I may even get a few butternut squash.

Pasta Salad with Squash & Tomatoes

There was a carnival in one of the villages we rode through on our bike ride this morning.

Not a big one – they rarely are here, in the middle of nowhere.

We saw bumper cars (there are always bumper cars) but I didn’t see any other ‘rides’. It was set-up in the town square, which is small.

I’m guessing that the rest of the entertainment consisted of games to play, mainly for the kids, a cotton candy stand (there is always cotton candy) and, maybe, a ‘frites’ truck (French fries to the Americans).

And, this being a Sunday in France in September (1st month with an ‘R’ after summer), an oyster truck.

I haven’t used so many () in a long time.

We didn’t stop. It was too nice of a morning for a bike ride.

Besides, they didn’t have a Tilt-a-Whirl which I absolutely would have stopped for.

  1. You know, my sister in law loves squash. I never thought about it, but I should pass your squash recipes on to her. I bet this would be a real winner for her.

    I love the Tilt-a-whirl! It was always my favorite ride. I would have definitely stopped too 🙂 And cotton candy. I can’t remember the last time I had that, but I’ve always loved it.
