Squash anyone ?

Friday, March 15, 2013

This morning I went out to the veggie market and came across this display

The Plan recipes call for butternut squash at times and I am totally unfamiliar with squash except for zucchini and pumpkin.

Does anybody know what squashes these are?

  Yes, those descriptions are all correct. I wanted to let you know that for the butternut squash on day 10 for lunch....i steamed some kabocha squash. OMG it was so sweet and delicious, felt like a decadent treat!! and, so easy.

    I believe the far left is the butternut squash, acorn and spaghetti, but no clue on the really big one.

    not sure but the middle one might be what they call spagetti squash. The others I am not familar with either.
I do like squash though.

    The pale ones look like butternut squash ( on the left) then Acorn squash, and then Spaghetti squash! ( they are delicious substitute for pasta/spaghetti) and then the one on the right I have never seen!

Spaghetti squash is so yummy! I usually bake mine.....
