An acorn squash is on tonight's supper menu (along with chicken and rice soup).

You're not the only ones! It's one of the things I learnt when I worked in shops: a display must be attractive and neat but not too neat or people won't fill their shopping baskets. I love the display of leeks!

12 Artful Displays of Vegetables

Another example of beauty out of natural things. I think I would have trouble shopping in a store with such displays, I wouldn't want to disturb the order of things. 

That says more about me than I want to know.

Oh, what wattage did you use on the hens for warmth?
Comment by kathy: ky on January 16, 2016 at 11:14pm
Daniel, without additional light my eleven hens are producing between eight and ten eggs a day. Some days as few as seven. I have attributed the consistent laying to the unusual warmth (63° a day ago) and their youth (they just started laying in Aug).
Question; occasionally I find a fertilized egg. Doesn't this mean one of the twelve is a rooster? I haven't been able to find the answer on the web because of such crappy internet service. We are serviced by satellite and the weather interferes a lot! Especially in the fall, winter and spring :- ((

"Our" chickens are on strike, hardly laying at all. Not good. Speaking of chickens, I heard on NPR that the industry is changing, prohibiting the caging of hens. What good news.

Worked hard all day. No time for cutting and chopping, nothing thawed out for dinner. Grab the Bertolli Sauce, cook up a pot of fettucini, open a can of green beans and cook serve with homemade croutons left over from the night before. Pull a head of lettuce apart and toss with some vinegar and oil with a sprinkle of herbs from the garden that I dried. Supper is ready. Finish off the meal with those small tangerines that diners peel themselves, pass a box of chocolates and accept the praises of the eaters.

Beautiful! Glad your hens laying more eggs; any reason why?

I concur with Carl, and I'll add Daniel to Pat's name.

Although  I just spent 4 days in Honduras, I didn't eat much local cuisine. Disappointing. Why not? My son-in-law is a "meat and potatoes" guy, so my daughter doesn't cook traditional local meals. We even had spaghetti one supper.

LOL   Pat, I absolutely love your passion for food!
