Winter Squash Crumble

Back in California! A very big change from Michigan weather where I was bundled up from head to toe, I am now in shorts and a tank top.


This savory main dish is kind of a vegetarian's savior to me. It is hearty and flavorful, perfect for a cold fall or winter day, not that I seem to be getting many of those. I love a good big salad, but its nice to have another option of dinner. 

 The squash are from my Aunt and Uncle's garden, so I am not sure of the exact varieties I used. I just chopped them all up to the same size and they tasted great together. They got soft but not mushy when baking them and then the crumble was crunchy, somewhat like a biscuit texture but better.

 I've got about 700 photos from Michigan to download and go through. Now this will take about 4 hours or more to just download on my computer, not looking forward to it. It will have to be put off for tomorrow... New computer, car, so many expensive things to buy. At least I will start to work at the bakery full time next week! Which I am very happy about, but it means that my co-worker is leaving, so I am taking her shift. It will be so sad to see her go, her and I just work together alone every morning. I'll miss my little tattooed San Francisco girl.

 Recipe adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe.

This looks like a fun recipe. I'm a big chicken when it comes to experimenting with different types of winter squash. I like your approach to just cut them up and mix them together. I now wish I had grabbed more from last week's farmer's market!

This looks so delicious! I can just imagine how amazing that crumble tastes. And all the different squashes look beautiful! I'm sorry to hear that your co-worker is leaving, it's really hard when friends move.

This is gorgeous! And I love the idea of a savoury crumble; it's something you don't see everyday. How I wish I could go to California right about now... I live in Canada.

I must say Julie... I have been loving your blog for a good while now and for the most part I pay attention because you choose great recipes, and you're a Bay Area girl like me. But I have to say, your photography is just getting better and better. I now find myself looking at the beautiful photographs you take for quite a while before I read the recipe or the post. That photo of the singular curly squash, for instance, is just gorgeous.

Anywho, I thought I would just say so. :)
