This wonderful rich and savory dish utilizes one of the autumn's finest offerings, acorn squash. The combination of the fruit's sweetness paired with the lush texture of the goat's cheese creates a winning combination. Delicious with roasted chicken or baked salmon.

Yields four sides

Ingredients:
Olive Oil
1 Acorn squash
6 cloves garlic
4 – 5 ounces plain goats cheese
2 Tablespoons butter, divided
4 egg whites
2 egg yolks

Wondering what you can do with all of the cherry tomatoes you are faced with, besides just pop them in your mouth? This delicious dish is from the kitchen of our board member, Julie Daily (who also bakes her own delicious crusty bread to go with them). She says "this is a great recipe when the bounty of cherry tomatoes arrives!"
Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds whole cherry tomatoes
2 shallots, chopped
1/8 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper, optional
3 teaspoons fresh lemon thyme leaves
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

If given the opportunity to live off the land for an entire year, I’d have to seriously consider whether or not my gardening skills would be up to snuff.  There’s a good chance I’d have to a series of “emergency” phone calls to the staff of Wasatch Community Garden.  “Help!  I killed all my peppers and the deer ate my tomatoes.”  That sort of thin
