It's always a good idea to know the vegetable you are cooking...

...before you start cooking it.

Hmmm, I think I'll finally use a couple of those yellow squashes that came off that vine that I thought was pumpkin, then decided was yellow squash.

Yes, sauteeed in olive oil, sounds delicious.

Well, that was a tough cut. I know it's kind of dark outside, but these sqush feel really hairy, and that thin part kind of felt more like stem. But, you know, I left it on the vine a long time, so maybe that's why it looks so globular instead of the yellow squash shape.

Wow. That yellow squash is really globular and hairy. And what's this? That really is stem?!

But. It's yellow. Pale yellow.


Hmph. For yellow squash, that really smells pumpkin-y.

Well, I guess I must be psyching myself out that these might be pumpkins, because they are clearly yellow squash.

Hmph. That smells kind of sweet.



La de dah... butter! Cumin!

Voila! For dinner, we have fresh young pumpkin from the garden, with butter and cumin!
