Roasted Homegrown Squash

Wednesday, July 6 -

We had our engagement photo's last weekend! Check out our photographer's sneak peak.

Now onto food.

My parents are talented gardeners. They keep an impressive garden on the side of their house and grow flavorful vegetables and herbs. I realized when I started buying my own produce in college that not all vegetables are grown equally and supermarket produce can be pretty bland (tomatoes and eggplants in particular just aren't the same!).

Anyone know what kind of squash this is? I can't remember the name ... all I know is it's delicious and tastes even better since my parents picked it for me.

The colors are beautiful and I wanted to eat this without masking it in a dish.

Just some olive oil, salt and pepper, and a good roast (350 degrees for 20 minutes or so). I wish I could pass you a slice. The squash is tender, the edges slightly caramelized, and it's perfect for a summer night.

There is just something special about eating food that you grow yourself (or that your parents grow!). ;) Such a wonderful feeling!
