 Theme  Veggie Spaghetti and a Modern Farmer Gift

The Squash: When cooked, the flesh of spaghetti squash falls away into ribbons or strands, which makes a great a great substitute for pasta. Spaghetti squash can be baked, boiled, steamed or microwaved, and the seeds can be roasted and eaten like pumpkin seeds. If you're microwaving (that's the fastest way), here's how you do it:
 
Cut the bottom off the spaghetti squash so you have a flat surface, then cut in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, put the halves with the flesh side down in a dish with an inch of water, microwave for 4-5 minutes per pound. It is done when you can easily pierce the skin.
 
Use a fork to pull the spaghetti-like strands from the skin. Looks just like pasta, but has a nice little crunch to it.  Ideas:  add pasta sauce or butter & maple syrup
 
The Gift: Turns out that the editor of the Modern Farmer lives about 5 minutes from Field Goods Central Command.  After a couple drinks at the local brew pub, we came up with the idea of giving Field Goods customers a copy of the magazine and a special offer, a one year subscription for $15. You will find a card for the offer in the magazine. We figured since you care about  food and farming this seemed like a natural. Please consider supporting Modern Farmer, they are doing good work. 
 
This month’s magazine features: The Great American Bison, Oh You Sexy Beast. Here is a sample of a recent article about a 9-year-old driving a combine.
