Sometimes You Can’t Win

I got this lovely Queensland Blue Squash last week in the CSA basket. I hoped to roast it and make bread with it for a get together at my volunteer site.

But, although organic foods are wonderful for me to use, they have their downsides. I picked it up today to cut it and roast it and found an tiny hole in the bottom, probably the exit point for the little critter who had gotten in through the stem. He (it) had wreaked havoc in the squash and it gave off an ugly odor. Off to the compost pile for my lovely squash, and on to plan B, a butternut squash from two weeks ago.

Thankfully, critter free.
