Day 8, Engine 2 Fall 2014 Northeast PA 28 day challenge, discovering delicata!

Today was a good food day with a new food to check off of our list of things we haven’t tried–delicata squash! It was beautiful, smelled heavenly as it baked, was sweet and had, well, a delicate flavor! We didn’t add anything to it but a little pepper at the table and it was perfect just as it was. I was going to cube it to add it to the chili I was making, but it was too soft, so we just had it as a side dish. I’m looking forward to finding more of these. We were given the two we had today by a friend who got them in her CSA from Purple Pepper Farms.
