Farm Share Week 17 Sept. 24-27, 2014

It’s week 17 already-and I’m not sure if this month has flown for anyone else but for my family-it’s zipped by quicker than I realized.  With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away (and my son turns 2!) we are nearing the end of the farm share season 🙁 Until then though we’ll still be getting some amazing goodies in our boxes and this week Jenny informed me that everyone gets 11 items in their boxes-score!

This weeks recipes is one that I discovered last year when I had piled up all the squash from nearly every box and had no clue what to do with them.  It’s a staple in our house during this time of the year and it’s AMAZING! What is better than baked squash? Why baked squash with maple syrup (a super food to boot).  This recipe is from all recipes-enjoy!
