Stormy Sunday

It's very stormy here in Oregon today...  Gus and I were going to go for a walk in the forest, but fortunately we were slow getting about.  It started hailing, like I've never seen before...so much wind and then the lightning and thunder started!  Five out of Six of our pets got very nervous.  Not Rudy...here is a picture of him...as calm as can be.
Something else I've been thinking about today...Delicata Squash.  I tried this squash last year for the first time and fell in love!  It really is one of my favorite things to eat.  I roast it in the oven after drizzling olive oil over it and adding coarse sea salt, pepper and fresh rosemary.  It's the best!  And, I found a new little squash to try this year...A sweet Dumpling Squash.  Isn't it cute!  I can't wait to try it!

That squash sounds wonderful Deb, I may have to see what s available at the local market.
Hey Rudy you do look calm and mellow! What a sweet face that fellow has....
Hope the weather gets better for you there, we are looking at rain all week here in upstate New York...sheesh. I may have to go dig the Dahlias up in the rain after all.
Have a great week!
