Sometimes it really is about inner beauty. This may look ... um.... odd, but in truth, it is an amazing thing. No, it is not a someones colonoscopy... it is not even human at all. It is a gem of the vegetable kingdom. A rare find... a true diamond in the rough. Yes I speak loving words for this strange curcurbit for it is due the praise. Please judge not until you have seen it to the end (of the post below that is).

Here we continue with the mystery beauty, though a mystery to you no longer. This is a Marina di Chioggia squash that I grew in my garden this summer. This was by far the most delicious winter squash I have ever grown. It was sweet and cooked up so well. It's inner beauty was the stuff of soup legend and dinner table seconds. If you were lucky enough to be at the Long Beach Stitch'nBeach party (you were lucky enough!) for our dear Jennifer and her baby Heath you may have tasted some of this beauty. It was used to make the squash soup. After cutting up this adorable darling I realized that it was just too much inner beauty for our family alone (and not to mention I had to share some of it's yummy goodness with a friend) I called Sharlene to come and get a bit. She made 'inner beatuy' soup for the party! So remember.... Sometimes it is about what's on the inside..... Eat up that inner beauty and revel in your own!
