I did it again. I gave a complete stranger unsolicited cooking advice in public, and I am not ashamed to say it.

Several days ago, I stopped by my favorite place to buy fall squash, Melody Acres in Bargersville. I was looking over the squash when I heard a woman on the phone with her daughter asking how she should prepare spaghetti squash.

Her daughter must not have known because she hung up and started to look it up on her smartphone. Seeing an opportunity to help, I approached the woman and shared with her a quick and easy way to make it and exactly how easy it was to prepare.

It occurred to me then that many people seem to eat the same thing week after week and rarely branch out because they are unsure how to prepare new foods.
