A recipe, well all of them are tasteless, can't you swap for a cabbage? I suppose you could hollow it out, make a smiley face and tell your son it's halloween it'll be cheaper than Christmas.

I recall a relative hollowing out marrows and filling them with mince, just can't see the point and the fiddling. Another waste of fertiliser is Aubergines, tasteless things.
Glad you liked the roast potatoes.

You could clean it, cut into chunks, then roast on an oiled tray with onions, carrots etc, then make a Thai curry.
Do you have the recipe for the Thai curry snd I'll give it a go ;)

Throw it in the bin, seriously it's absolutely ganking.

There is a reason why certain foods have been marginalised in the food chain it's called market forces.
People realise that buttercup squash and its bastard child - the butternut squash - are....rubbish. If it was even a tiny bit pleasant it would be a regular feature on supermarket shelves, whereas it isn't and so it's not.

A few years ago when I was in the States I was listening to the Howard Stern show. Stern was interviewing a teenager who had lost his arms up to the shoulder in a farming accident. The conversation moved onto his sex life and he said he got his brother to hollow out a hole in various large vegetables and 'had his way' with these. I would suggest this as the best use for a buttercup squash and this 're-branding' might be the only way to save this endangered species from natural deselection and the compost bin of history.

A passing nod to marrows and turnips. Merry Christmas.

Haven't got a recipe as such, a friend put it on for a party once and I tried to replicate it a couple of times.....

Basically, you roast a medley of veg, you can include sweet potato as well, then add to a tin of coconut milk and some green thai curry paste.... only use half what the buggers reccomend, then add a little more if you can handle it.

It's one of those recipes you have a go with a combination you think you'll like, then tune it to taste.

Pineapple would be good as well.

Warm the curry paste first though and whisk in the coconut milk, you don't want it lumpy. If you're using meat just add it to the thickened paste when it's heated and thickened. You can add the meat raw, the Thais do. Not sure I'd spoil a good curry with mush but they do use small Asian Aubergines but I don't. Dried shiitake or straw mushrooms are nice.

I've just discovered the joys of a soup maker, an American Origional" I had some manking veg at the bottom of my veg drawer that would otherwise have been slung. I'm utterly addicted now and want to soup up everything. Squash and chorizo however just a match made in heaven.
A soup maker, do you mean a pan?

I assume you've never wandered around the "Lakeland" shops and thought, "What a brilliant ******* gadget!

And a ******* bargain at £ 150. 99!"
No I've not that'd just be silly. I did see a fantastic 'invention' for finishing off food that was heated it wasn't cheap, they could have had some sort of box filled with hay to do the same job.
