I love getting mail and, in my opinion, boxes are best! For me, part of the fun of a vacation is coming home to big piles of mail - I love it, okay maybe not the bills, but everything else. When we arrived home from our little "break", I was greeted with one of those flat rate boxes from my grandparents in San Diego (Guagua and Popie for those of you keeping track at home). I picked it up and, man, oh man, it was heavy; I was still uncertain what was inside, but one thing was for sure, they got their money's worth! I, of course, opened the box right away and can you imagine my surprise when I saw all of these carefully packed inside of the 11" X 8.5" X 5.5" box?
Popie grew these in his new garden! I love butternut squash and have big plans for these: Barefoot Contessa's butternut squash soup, FoodTV's butternut squash lasagna, and maybe some sage and butternut squash pasta. Mmm-mm! Thank you Gua and Popie for sharing.
