Perhaps it was not an oversight. I've never heard of it and I am quite food literate. Maybe His Noodliness in inifinite wisdom advised Bobby that touching all the continents with his Noodly Appendage was done in a manner that took care not to make anyone feel excluded. Given how much we import I expect it is to be found somewhere here but equality of access to holy food replica items is important. :mrgreen:

You know, I tried it tossed with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon (and a little rum) and found I do like it THAT WAY. (Which is the way I like Hubbard Squash, Golden nugget, Acorn squash and pumpkin...all other winter squashes are yucky.)


I think you may be on to something there. Except that I'd but the butter and brown sugar into a larger quantity of rum and consume the rum and throw away the squash. :fsm_yarr:

I think it more likely that Bobby (who is human, after all) had never heard of spaghetti squash, or failed to connect it with the Americas. In the context of enlightening readers regarding how His Noodly Appendages have touched all continents, general ignorance of a regional food outside its region would be all the more reason to include it.

On the other hand, he might have left it out on purpose in order to leave something for us humble devotees to discover.

Huh, grew up on the stuff (liked it much better than zucchinni or the yellow sqarshes in the garden) and as I recall it keeps pretty well through the winter in a *cool* basement. Which might be an issue there. It's available year-round in stores here, though I imagine the quality suffers.

Same in Florida. And with rapidly rising sea levels... y'know.

Hrm... saline groundwater? Wot's all this about water resource issues if not? What's the soil types like?

I'd shudder to live within a mile of a gas station down there... the LNAPL plumes must raise merry hell. Y'all use aboveground storage tanks?

With that scheme you'd just have to check for water infiltrating into the liner... if it's waterproof it'll keep anything from moving far out. Might still have a nasty pit, but that can be dig n' dumped. I suppose landfills are even more fun to deal with.
