    anyone like spaghetti squash?

    picked most of my spagetti squash and set it on the porch to harden off. this is about 2/3's of what I grew in 5 hills
    there is one butternut squash on top of the tub I love growing my own veggies
    between corn, green beans, summer squash and winter squash I brought 2 reusable grocery bags and the trailer load of veggies out of the garden today

    That's a lot of spaghetti squash. Still for the life of me can't seem to figure out why it comes out looking like that. I eat it with pesto & a tomato sauce.

    Do not want. Squash and I do not like each other very much. It is cool that you do though.

    That is about 2/3's of the spaghetti squash I have grown this year I will get more butternut than the spaghetti I have given around 75 pounds of yellow zuchinna away and my pan patty squash is starting to come on squash is one of my favorite things to grow. I may have to eat squirrels to get any of my corn though. Gardening is one of the things that keep me sane

    I'm a much bigger fan of butternut squash, especially in soup form. Stuff with a bit of butter/garlic/onion and roast for an hour. Purree and yum yum yum.

    About the only way I know to eat spaghetti squash is to steam until soft, then fluff out the innards and eat. Got anything to add?

    Cut many in half.

    Place one chunk of butter in each half.

    Roast slowly until golden brown.

    Saute your favorite veggies with plenty of garlic and some good olive oil.

    Spaghetti that spaghetti squash.

    Throw into well sauteed veggies.

    Toss mixture a bit to mix it all up.

    Serve with some white wine.

    Enjoy.

    Not a big spaghetti squash fan - have tried a few attempts at it and it was ... OK. Texture I think was a big thing for me since I used it as the basis to a dish - need to have someone chef me up someting nice using it so I can decide otherwise. However squashes (other than spaghetti) - I love. Anything. From small baby squashes to the big ole lunker butternuts and bigger -I luvs me squashies!!!

    +1 on the mead. Awesome stuff there!

    If you try my recipe, roast at 350. I forgot to mention adding a few leaves of sage also. Scoop out and puree. I mix in a cup or three of chicken/vegetable broth for taste and consistency. Simmer and serve. A most excellent topping is small cubed mozerella.

    Good recipes for the spaghetti squash. Open to more!

    Like I said I have given around 75# of yellow zuchinnas away .I sometimes ride around and leave squash on peoples porches. I have dropped by both new neighbors. One from Ca. one from Minn. Introduced myself and gave them veggies . Let them know if they needed anything give me a call
    I figure if you want good neighbors you have got to be one

    My parents' garden during the 80's allowed them to make their mortgage payments when the economy was so bad in SE Michigan. We ate lots of spaghetti squash instead of pasta.

    With the missus on a low carb diet, every winter I'd make tons of spaghetti squash with from-scratch beef ragu.

    I will tell you this - working in the garden, with the fruit trees we had, and all the canning & freezing we did were some of the happiest memories of my childhood. My mom said later that it was one of the best times in her life (despite the financial distress) because of that. We sure ate well.

    I am sorry to hear about your layoff, but I do hope your garden brings you some contentment as well as food.
