D grew the most amazing things in our garden this summer. As we officially transition into Fall (today!), he happily brought in a bowl of beautiful edible objects. I love the random beauty of the vegetables, but couldn't help shaping the produce into a smile. Now what to do with these things? The tomatoes are best popped straight into the mouth, perhaps dressed in a little salt and oil. The squash? I'm almost sick of the squash. Not quite though. I even nibbled on a giant raw specimen, driving home from a friend's house -- I was inspired by all the neighborhood squirrels! And the petite butternut? Maybe roast it with sage and butter? Risotto anyone?
Hmm . . .
I'm still enamoured and amazed that D grew these things, right before our eyes on our little patch of soil in the backyard. Increible!
I'm curious, what would you do with tomatoes, a yellow squash and a butternut?
