Genesis 1.1... by Thomas

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"...

And then he created the spaghetti squash.

As Everybody knows, when europeans discovered the Americas, they brought plenty of treasures back to their countries. So many good things like cocoa beans which we invented the chocolate with, tomatoes, potatoes, corn, capsicum, beans..and sooo many spices. Yummy. But then, I arrived in Americas. Like Jacques Cartier, I travelled from France, across the Atlantic, up the Saint Laurent to discover Montreal (well I was in the plane though). I discovered the Natives (well mine were more from germany than indians but well) who cooked for me...the spaghetti squash. I so loved it, but why dont we have this in France??????

You darn European explorers, why didnt you bring back that veggie to Europe?

On peut trouver le spaghetti squash chez Carrefour...si, si! Je ne me souviens plus du nom français -- courge spaghetti? -- mais il existe là-bas!

But Kim, it might be easier if you cook it for Thomas. :)

I confirm that spaghetti squash is quite available in the south of france, and I am now finding some of my favorite other squash, like butternut, as well.
and they do call it courge spaghetti here:)

Hi Kim & Thomas. I love spaghetti squash, too. It's good for you, and it's also really versatile and can be used in many different ways. Yum.

I'm not sure, but that stuff is just great. Same with some of the red potatoes here and a few other veggies... Most people in Canada have never heard of eating artichokes either! They are crazy!!!
