I’m working on a freelance article, and, of course, it has to be about squash. I’ve been putting it off and putting it off because, you know, it’s about squash. None of my previous stabs at original squash recipes had driven me wild, but finally, finally (on my last CSA butternut), I came up with a recipe I love. I even heard myself say out loud to no one in particular, “This is fucking delicious.” And you know I don’t like to bandy about gratuitous profanity.
Unfortunately, I can’t share the recipe right now. The magazine is paying me actual money, and you, my friends? You are not. But if you’re still with me in September/October 2008, I promise to tell you then.
(Update 8/08: I lied. It would be bad form to post the recipe while the magazine is still on newsstands. Maybe later if you ask nicely.)
