its a SQUASH!!!

It has come to my attention that some person in my home does not approve of the sweet and filling food that comes from squash. I am not naming names but since there are only two of us I'm leaving it up to the reader to guess who. It takes a great deal of creativity and planning to come up with a menu of foods that everyone at home will eat and I tip my hat to those wonderful mothers who pull it off.
I admit as a child i did not want to eat my squash for dinner and some times even for dessert. But come on. Is there really that big of a difference between a sweet meat squash and a Pumpkin? I dare say there isn't! In fact i find it is impossible to tell the two apart after making them into a pie.
I think it is a outrage that pumpkins have had the corner on the market when it come to preferred pies. It all starts on Halloween that children become accustomed to their pumpkins and get all buddy buddy with them leaving the squash out in the cold to wait for November to come. I mean really people it comes off the same garden plot. Down with the Oppression! Down with the Selecting! And Down with the snubbing food I've slaved over a hot stove to put on the table for you!
... I love you dear.
