I had never heard of or seen sweet potato squash(aka Delicata squash). I had only decided to get it because of a few factors. One because it was locally grown (according to the sign outside the grocery store locally grown means in "Ontario" but I have a feeling it was closer than just the province I live in because of where I live and the farm land that surrounds it.), and two because it's almost autumn (remember just because it's September doesn't mean it's really fall till the 22-23 of the month :) ) and squash is in abundance and I need to learn how to make more dishes with this wonderful plant.
Now I got lucky and because it was locally grown the nice people who either harvested or the people who got them at the store put a nice little sticker on the outside of the squash telling what kind it was and a very easy way to cook it.
This would be fine if he didn't say after he finishes the milk and before he finishes the food that he was full. He even thought he'd be clever and say "But I want strong bones!" I then countered with the fact that a serving of winter squash (1 cup) has 3% calcium, 33% vitamin C, 214% vitamin A, 6g of fiber, etc. Realizing I was talking to a 9 year old, I then said "It does some of the same stuff as milk and more by keeping you from getting sick and keeps you healthy. But if you want milk after you finish it you can have a glass."
I don't think this made much of a difference to him, but for those of you that are not wanting to eat your squash, find a way to cook it so you like it and remember what great things it does for you health wise!
