Fall is the time of abundance. The dividends of summer are flowing in. The timing is perfect as we all go through the bumps of transition and get ready for the coming cold. Having a lot at hand to eat definitely makes that easier. Nothing marks the coming of fall like squash. One of my favorites makes its entrance this week, Sugar Dumpling. Like a cross between delicata and acorn, its sweet and has a nutty flavor. Great to look at as well, I like to leave it on the counter for a few days to enjoy before it disappears.
