I did say a few more winter squash recipes, right?
I haven’t told mon mari yet but I still have one big blue pumpkin in the cave.
I’m debating…. I can either make another big batch of soup for the freezer, which will have me eating soup for lunch until June (when the lettuce is ready.) or I can give … Continue reading.....

As my oven was occupied I … Continue reading.....
