Carrie's Spanish Squash

Raven Higheagle


I sent my daughter to a Boarding School in upstate New York that was also a working farm. During her first year her job was to care for the animals. One day I got a call from her and she said "Mom they want me to eat my friends." Honestly, at first I thought she meant people, then it dawned on me that she meant animals. I asked her if her job was taking care of the animals? She said very sadly, yes. I asked if it was slaughter time? Sadly, she replied yes. Then I asked if they grew vegetables? She said yes. I told her to eat them. Cooking for a vegetarian is hard at times, be creative.
