Theme: Veggie Spaghetti  
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: poke a bunch of holes in the squash with a knife (8-10) and set it in a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high 4-5 minutes per pound. Half way through, rotate the squash. Let it cool enough that you can handle it, then cut off the top and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds (save them!) and use a fork to pull the spaghetti-like strands from the skin. Looks just like pasta, but has a nice little crunch to it.

Small Wonder Spaghetti Squash Weighing in around two pounds, these are just the cutest squash around. Pro tip: kids like spaghetti squash with butter and maple syrup. Shaul Farm (FAM)
 

 
Cauliflower Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower "cabbage with a college education." For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. We're excited to try cauliflower with curry butterKilpatrick Family Farm (CO)

Cauliflower Popcorn: Kid-friendly alert! May even rival kale chips... Snip the cauliflower head and reserve the core and stems for another use. Coat with salt and olive oil, then spread on a lined baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for a half hour or so, turning the cauliflower over halfway through. Serve warm and toss with parmesan cheese. 

Friday Note: The cauliflower is a mix of  Romanesco and Amazing & Vita Verde cauliflower varieties. Romanesco, which is one of the ugliest vegetables on earth, is also known as Romanesque cauliflower. First documented in Italy, it is light green in color. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal, meaning that each bud is composed of smaller buds which form a logarithmic spiral. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, its texture is far more crunchy, and its flavor is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.
Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then add splash of liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. Kilpatrick Family Farm (CO)
Macoun Apples Extra sweet, the perfect dessert apple. A Macintosh hybrid. Fix Brothers Farm (IPM)
