I have to admit, my mum is the master veggie grower in this family. I'm not very good at it really. I can grow tomatoes, and I seem to be able to grow onions, and herbs. But mostly my harvest is pretty dismal.
Lately when I have visited Mums place, I have come home with bags and bags of stuff. From great heads of green caterpillar infested broccoli, zucchinis, carrots, beans(which I did successfully grow this year, til the dog ransacked the garden), capsicums, baby corn and cucumbers. She also offered me a spaghetti squash. I will give anything a go, and hey its free, so why not?! She said to steam it (yeah right, I can't see myself steaming anything that big), so I googled to see how
the experts people in the know do it, and most baked it. So spaghetti bog night came around and I baked my squash for an hour before the sauce was ready.

I wrapped the other half in glad wrap, put it in the fridge and rehashed it(took to it with a fork, microwave reheated it) for lunch the next two days. I had it with olive oil, garlic, oregano and parsley(out the garden, coz I can grow that), and then with parmesan, thyme and garlic the next day.

Mum revealed that she had thrown one back in the compost because she had too many. I was shocked and appalled and told her at once, I would have some more!
