I'm making spaghetti squash as a  base with home made Roma sauce and sauted mushrooms and lamb meatballs tonight.

Squash? How about we skip that and go straight into root vegetable season? I'm looking forward to roasting chickens over beds of turnips and rutabegas again soon.

I'm so tired of zucchini. I bookmarked the article because I would like to cook other kinds of squash. The only squash I ate as a kid was crookneck squash. That kind isn't even mentioned. Which has me wondering how many kinds of squash are there?

Butternut is fin because you can cut it into strips or cubes and then grill/bake/broil.  Put any seasoning on you want.

Acorn is fun for stuffing.  Cut in half, hollow out, cook, then fill the center while with whatever.

Spaghetti squash can literally be used as a substitute for noodles.  Bake it until soft, then use a for to scrape out the long strands.

Here's a great recipe for stuffed acorn squash. I use wild rice in place of the farro.

Thank you. I made zoodles so I'm tired of fake spaghetti. I think I'll give the butternut and Acorn squash.

/making zoodles is kinda fun

I'm not done with zucchini.  Just this year I learned you can pickle them, like cucumbers, and now I'm obsessed.

Hey, you anti-squash subby, i see you over there! Stop badmouthing these beautiful squashes RIGHT NOW!

Acorn squash baked with butter, brown sugar, and maybe light cinnamon sprinkles, "in the hole" is a seasonal food I looked forward to my ENTIRE childhood. WAY BETTER than my bag of halloween candies!

There are literally hundreds of cultivars of squash grown by humans. All bred from 5 (or so) long-domesticated species. Cool, yeah?

Also "squash" is fun to say. It's also a base for a type of boozy cocktail:

"Squash" is certainly as fun to say as "smock"

You forgot the 'pumpkin spice'

With the sugar pumpkins, my wife has a holiday tradition: pumpkin pie pumpkins.
Remove the top and hollow out like you're making a jack-o-lantern
Fill with your usual pumpkin pie filling
Put foil on the stem
Replace the "top" and bake about an hour

Now you've got a center piece and dessert already on the table.  The texture is different, the filling will be creamier and the "crust" of pie will have a custardy texture.

Here's a recipe doing something similar with a vanilla custard.

If you let your zucchini get really big you can make giant pickle slices, where one slice is good for a whole sandwich or burger.

We have three "stick of butter"* squash plants.  MY GI does NOT like it raw.  My wife loves it, so I've figured out how to cook it. Still way too much of the stuff.

*assumes you buy butter in ten-pound sticks.

I don't care much for it, but my favorite librarian will take all I give her.
