Costa Rican Squash
February 18, 2010
So, I clearly cannot keep up with blogging all of my meals whilst working. It’s fun and I may do it from time to time, but for now I have a new approach. This year my husband and I have been trying a new fruit of veggie every week. Should be manageable to blog about our produce adventures, right?
Meet… the Costa Rican Squash!
Yes, the bottom looks like an ugly, lumpy butt.
The inside looks like a pear!
Upon googling “Costa Rican Squash,” I chose this recipe from the first hit. It’s basically chopped squash, corn, and onion with a little bit of milk.
Ah, TJ’s classic labelling.
Finished product! It was pretty good, but bland. I’ll definitely add some crazy spices if we try this again.
We also used this delicious sauce to marinate some cod.
It came out pretty tasty!
The big picture.
In conclusion, the Costa Rican squash made for an interesting side dish, but it wasn’t delicious or interesting enough to become a staple in our home.
In other news, I am a superstar! I got up at 4:40 this morning for a 6 mile run! Even with all of my preparations last night (laying out clothes & gear, preparing some pre-run fuel, going to bed early), I wasn’t sure if I would really do it. But after one tiny “snooze” hit, I did it! I’m pretty sure someone will give me some kind of medal today.
Tonight is my orientation for Big Brothers, Big Sisters. I’m so excited – I really miss volunteering and kids.
