The New Basics
Back in July, we got a note from Margie, a reader who's been with us since nearly the beginning.
For years we've traded emails back and forth, with recipe recommendations and tips and such.
Margie doesn't live far from us, and this year she had a little gardening adventure, planting Marina del Chioggia squash.
Turns out Margie's squash were extremely productive. So at the end of August, Margie asked if we'd like to have one. Would we? Of course! Margie's daughter kindly dropped off a big ol' winter squash on our doorstep so we could play around with it.
Big is the operative word here. Here's a look at the squash itself. Want to guess how much it weighs?
