Hola Mi gente!!
How was Halloweeny? Good I hope. Hope every one is coming out of their Diabetic Comas. If you ate more than 20 Kit Kats, please call me or go to your nearest Hospital. Thank you, you guys are crazy! But hey even I went nuts this weekend. I started off with a King Size Milk Chocolate Hershey bar followed by a bag of Whoppers, followed by 28 Hershey Kisses, followed by crying, followed by depression, followed by Charles in Charge re runs.
Listen MI gente I need a friend. Anyways enough about Hallowbetes day. We just hit Novemeber. So lets get festive. Today we are going to talk about Squash. John Pilgrim would be proud. The traditional winter squash includes: Pumpkin, Acorn, Butternut, and Spaghetti squash. Spaghjetti squash? What kinda sauce do you put on that? Fughettaboutit!!!
Anyways lets get into it. So why Squash? Studies have shown that due to Squash’s carotene properties it prevents against lung cancer, heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes (c’mon Dad) and even reduces the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH ( c’mon Dad again). Squash can also prevent dehydration and damafging effects from the sun. So all you fake and bakers, get ya squash on!!
Squash has been a staple for Native Ameericans for more than 5000 years and it was a maintstay for early Europenas who settled in AMercia. Even George Washington and TJ (Thomas Jefferson) were pumped up about squash!! As a matter of fact, during the signing of the Decleration of Independence, the original piece of parchment had to be replaced because Benjamin Franklin smudged some squash on it. I made that up. But Squash rules!!
How good is it on Thanksgiving? I’ll tell you how good. True Story: My Uncle once at Thanksgiving, challenged my Aunt to a street fight over the last piece of squash. Basically my Uncle wound up crying with a face full of squash from Aunt Eileen’s fist. Pretty funny. Squash is officially a fruit and the smaller the squash, the more flavorsome it will be. So get out those pequeno squashs for all ya brothas and ya sistahs. I don’t why at about 15 minutes to this blog, I consisitently get ghetto. It is a problem and I am working on it. Listen this week’s blog is short and sweet!
