It’s a rainy New York Friday, but that won’t stop us city-dwellers from hitting up the farmers market. The gray sky is a bit of a downer, but it’s nice to see people weathering the weather to get the very best in local produce.

Days like this call for hot meals. Here’s a recipe for one I like a lot, featuring the noble squash.
