Spaghetti Squash Anyone??

We have harvested our crop of spaghetti squash. It is sitting on the front porch. Just help yourself! I cut it in half, lengthwise and microwave it until the skin is fork tender. It takes about 10 or 12 minutes. Then after removing the seeds, just drag a fork through itand pile it on your plate and it looks just like spaghetti. I make our usual meat sauce and with garlic bread, we have a tasty supper. It is a lot like spaghetti taste wise too. We have plenty so help yourself!

We got our first pullet egg this week. It was small, but they get larger as the hen matures. We have eleven pullets, (young hens, just starting to lay) so should start to see more eggs any day now. they are all Golden Comets and lay a large brown egg.

E informed me last evening that the second crop of sweet corn is ready to pick, so we will be freezing sweet corn tonight, I guess. Good eating in the wintertime! We have frozen 24 pints already. The tomatoes have just started ripening. We have had enough to eat but not to can or freeze yet.

This week has been rather ho-hum. Nothing new under the sun around here.
