We got yet more fall veggies today from the farm. Honestly, I'm a bit veggied out. I just ate a pound of spinach. But we got some fun winter squashes this week, which I love.
We got a butternut squash. I love that name. Butternut. Butternut. Butternut. Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdink! I wish it were a spaghetti squash. Spaghetti squashes are like God's surprise to the world. Spaghetti squash and platypus. Spaghetti squash and platypus and those crazy birds on Planet Earth.
The pumpkin is a decorative pumpkin. What does that mean? What happens if I try to eat it? Will it taste like sawdust, or will the Martha police be called on us, or will it actually be filled with sparkly glitter?
Although it's our favorite holiday (2nd to Christmas, of course), we don't know what to do for Halloween. So this Friday, we tricked some people into coming over for a covert Halloween party. (They think they're just coming over to watch Flight of the Conchords.) We're going to make spiced chai cider, chocolate chip pumpkin muffins, caramel apples, and puppy chow. Yum.
Does anyone have a Halloween party they want to invite us to on the 31st? Anyone? Or if we had a Halloween party, would anyone come? Anyone? Anyone?
