Can anyone identify this squash?
A friend gave it to me. She grew it in her garden, but she can't remember the variety. I've looked on the Internet, but I can't figure out what it is, so I'm stumped about how to cook it.
My friend gave me a Butternut squash too. Anyone recommendations for making that?
One reason I was feeling so anxious yesterday (and over the weekend) was that I lost a writing assignment on Saturday. The publisher canceled because of the economy. It was a very small assignment, so the financial impact is minimal, but I feared it was a sign of worse to come.
Michael and I were supposed to start a six-month assignment tomorrow, and we haven't received the contracts for the job yet. Several times this year, we've had situations of jobs being postponed and postponed and then canceled, so I was starting to feel really afraid about the long assignment. What made it even more nerve-wracking is that I turned down three other sizable jobs because I was committed to this one. If it fell through, I'd really be screwed.
Well, I received an email at the end of the day. It's still on. We need to call in for a teleconference on Thursday.
So that's my life today. My financial prospects are less squashed than my pantry is. (I know. Groan.)
