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.

    I have seen them, and eaten them, but have no clue how to prepare them.

    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.
    Knowing you, you will have fun experimenting with these.

    Maybe this link to a site on Squash varieties with pics will help.

    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.....
