I was making butternut squash risotto for dinner Saturday night so I went looking for a sizeable squash and wow, did I find it. There was only one left and I GOT IT. The butternut to end all butternuts! I gasped, I hefted, I took it's photograph immediately:
RIGHT? I mean, how is it possible that this is the squash everyone else passed over? It was like a sign from...somewhere good. I rushed home and before all the groceries were even in the door I was all, "OMGKENNYCOMELOOKCOMELOOKYLOOKYOMG!" Then I decided I needed to take a more formal portrait in order to really preserve the moment so put it next to one of my other favorite food items; a tableau if you will:
Gosh, isn't it something? Overcome by art, are you?
Then I cut it up, roasted the hell out of it and rolled it in with some risotto. And we ate it. The end.
