On Tuesday I took a few large not baby squashes home. I gave one to my neighbors who (coincidentally) were standing in their back yard holding a wiggly baby girl (not theirs). I thought I ought to cook some myself – so cut up the one that I had kept , seeded skinned and boiled it. It is interesting to think that this is what the babies look like inside. The aroma was delicious but I probably should have steamed or baked it as I am afraid a lot of the flavour may be lost in the water. There was quite a lot of it in the end and I was not sure what exactly I wanted to do with it – so mushed it up and put it in the freezer to be made into countless delicious dishes in the future (hmm). I am planning to be away for the weekend so did a big water that will be repeated by Cindy tomorrow, cut off all small squash and put my last mould on the one that I allowed to
remain. That is it! – the last mould I will be putting on this season! I also added the four new babies to the garden – the most successful bearing the “eternal” crown.
