The other day I was bemoaning the sudden prevalence of gourds on the food blogs, like even though it’s been around 90 every day at home, and San Francisco is finally having objectively warm afternoons, September must mean “autumn” so let’s all pretend we’re ready for ovens again. Nonsense, I said. Do not come to me with your pumpkin projects until October.
Then I saw this squash chart.
Now, who wants to share their favorite cold-weather squashy recipes? We know Laura’s all over this pumpkin mac ‘n’ cheese! I just got this julienne peeler and have been making noodley zucchini-and-carrot salads, but what if I julienne-peeled a butternut and made, like, squash hashbrowns? Or potatonut pancakes? Kind of brilliant, right?
