Are You Gonna Eat That?

Like we try to do every week, we stopped at the farmer's market near the Madison Library and, after assuring ourselves that we had at least one baguette, we sauntered past the tables eyeing and fingering the produce.  Lead veggie farmer Cody Carper had this beast at his stand.  "French," he said.  "Tasty."  But they weren't moving.

Two bucks.  He threw in an acorn squash.  

So now it looms in our kitchen like the pod of an alien colonist, or a sinister pumpkin ready for revenge over past mutilations.
But what the heck.  We're gonna eat that bugger. I hope my nose doesn't then take on the physical attributes of this flash gourd.

Ok, "pod of an alien colonist" describes that thing perfectly. You must write a follow-up post once you've indulged in the "ugly squash". Mr. Carper does know his stuff, so I would trust his suggestion...I think.

What's for supper Sunday night? The variety is Brodé Galeux d’Eysines. Here is a recipe for a tasty sounding soup, made all the more enticing thanks to the cool weather this weekend.
