Playing With My Food

Just for fun I decided to play with my food this afternoon. Acorn squash was on the menu. Vegetables are so fascinating. The thought that this delicious squash started as a little seed--just as we do, is beyond comprehension yet is a part of everyday life.

The seeds look like they could be a nice pair of earrings, don't you think?

By the way, I tried roasting the seeds. There is a reason you don't find acorn squash seeds on your grocery shelves. They are edible, but not very good.  
However, supper was a perfect winter time meal. The roasted squash was coated with a little melted butter and maple syrup, the pork chops were brown and a little crusty with their brown rice flour coating and the tossed salad added just the right balance. YUM!
