Sometimes, I'm just blown away by the brilliance of the universe. Just as the evenings get cool and I start craving carbs, here at the CSA and in the Farmers' Markets are piles of squash that just need a nice half hour in a warm oven. Could thousands of plants really have deloped over thousands of years to so perfectly answer drafty old New England houses and how much I love to gather with friends in a toasty kitchen? Well, I guess evolution isn't something with which one has a personal relationship, but often it's at the turning of the seasons that I am most struck by the alignment between what we, in any given place, want and need to eat and what is just ripe and ready in that very place right around us.
