Wow, it’s been a while since my last post…I have been very busy organizing my life now that I am back at school, and I also had to deal with out internet in the house for 4 days! Everyone in the house has a huge appreciation for the internet now!
Since I have been away from home for the past few days, I have had to learn how to grocery shop and cook just for one (me). It feels so weird buying foods just for myself to eat, as I am not sharing them at home with my family anymore. For the past 4 days I have been pretty much eating the same food, just making different renditions of it. The bulb of fennel I bought on Tuesday is only half eaten and for the past few days it has been eaten in stir fry, pasta, salad, soup and of course just to nibble on.
Anyways, my point being for this post is about the butternut squash I purchased on Thursday. I really wanted to have butternut squash with my dinner, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to use all of it, as butternut squashes are usually quite large. To my surprise I found the smallest little squash in the organic section and it was 92 cents a pound…I’m pretty sure the squash didn’t even weigh a pound! I ate half the squash and have froze the rest for a future meal. I was so excited on this find! I am sure as time goes on I will learn how to make more creative meals with the small amount of food I purchase.
