    Italian Squash Soup

    Two things started this week that happen every year around this time. It’s another reminder that the end of fall is near. Number 1:My mom calls/emails with a daily update on the snowfall report for Northcentral Wisconsin. They’re expecting 4-8″ overnight.  Brace yourself. Minnesota won’t be too far behind. Number 2:The kitchen partner begins to eat plain old leftover squash for two meals a day. No butter. No brown sugar. Just plain squash, mushed on a plate. Maybe a drizzle of maple syrup if he’s feeling adventurous. I think it’s disgusting. His co-workers think it’s creepy. He can’t get enough.  Knowing that squash is how a locavore survives this time…
