CSA Challenge: Delicata Squash

Suddenly, it was Thursday again and with it came another large basket of produce!  So what did we eat last week?  Well,  here it is:

  • Friday we had steak with roasted potatoes, broccoli (the girls) and brussel sprouts (us)
  • Saturday we ate as many pears as we could and cooked up a big batch of Bolognese with the tomatoes and used the carrots and onions in chicken stock.
  • Sunday was pizza and salad for lunch, and pasta fagioli for dinner with a delicious side of braising greens.
  • Monday I made Soto Ayam (more on that later) which used some cilantro and the chicken stock.
  • Tuesday dinner never happened. sigh.
  • Wednesday: orrecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe.
  • Thursday – random leftovers.

So, by Thursday we still had some braising greens and broccoli rabe which we used on Friday night and a few tomatoes.  The incoming list was:

  • Delicata squash – we have been collecting these over the past few weeks and are looking for something to make with them – help!
  • Sweet potatoes
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 2 red onions
  • a quart of tomatoes
  • 4 roma tomatoes
  • braising greens
  • Spinach
  • Salad greens
  • more cilantro
  • broccoli
  • Cauliflower

With our abundance of tomatoes, we decided to take my friend Karyn’s advice and stuff them.  But with what?  After looking around online, I had mostly found unappetizing recipes for stuffing tomatoes (tuna and goat cheese anyone?), I was inspired by this recipe which called for baking eggs inside of a tomato (genius!) from the blog, We are Not Martha, which was a perfect Sunday breakfast.

    I have never seen an egg inside of a tomato but I love the idea. As for those squash, can you stuff them with rice and nuts and cranberries and bake them?
