Squash night

Sometimes my friends and I like to have an evening centered around cooking one particular vegetable. One time it was eggplant. Tonight it was squash.


We had acorn squash, spaghetti squash, butternut squash and even zucchini squash (yes, zucchini is a squash). Even without meat (some people I know are shaking their heads at me right now), it was a smashing success.


Yet, even though we definitely ate very reasonable portions and had tons left over, we realized that centering a meal around something as filling as squash might not be a great idea for the future. Each of these dishes could have been a meal within themselves. Yikes.
