Week 13 – Summer 2010 (the back to school edition)

Sep 9, 2010 | Box Contents, Week 13

Hello friends,

This week marks the beginning of squash season! Hopefully you enjoy all the variations that will come your way. Butternut squash is very simple to prepare (although it takes a long time to cook) and I enjoy pre-softening it in the microwave, peeling and cubing it, and adding a little butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to it before placing it in the oven, covered.

I also included some fresh basil in this week’s box because it is so fantastic with your tomatoes and zucchinis in sauces, bruchettas, and definately pastas (think pestos..mmm). Plus, basil is said to combat depression, so if you are feeling a little low with the recent dip in temperatures, add some flavour and cheer to your meal. Mind you, it smells no nice on its own that just smelling it can make you feel good!

I sincerely hope you are all having a wonderful back to school time (even if you don’t have kids to send back this year) and that you are enjoying all the tasty surprises found in your box this week.

Have a good one,
