Squashed

In our quest to extend our local diet into winter, we purchased some winter squash from a farmer friend.  Our purchase included two of these big beauties*:

Musque de Provence

Musque de Provence Squash

On Tuesday night, I brought one up from our basement storage, poked a few holes in it, and stuck it in the oven.  The roasting took longer than I expected, but when it was finally tender to the touch, I pulled it out and let it cool.  I cut it in half, and was greeted with amazingly bright orange flesh — so rich and vibrant!

In addition to being gorgeous and photogenic, the Musque de Provence is delicious.  We will be bringing some to our Good Eats vegetarian potluck tonight.
