Many folks prefer to peel off the membrane before cooking, it can be a bit troublesome but not really difficult.   mjb.
 It is worth it.
Squash in the oven - scoop seeds before or after cooking? I've always done before.   mjb.
  This photo of my garden plot was taken about a month ago, after a big windstorm blew over one of my trellises and flattened some of my roma tomatoes. All that leafy green in the foreground is from two healthy squash plants, acorn and spaghetti. Stuffed acorn squash is a favorite, as is squash soup.   I may actually get motivated to get an entry in this month, it has been a while.   mjb.
Maybe a bit late. I made my first batch from this year's harvest, a lovely basil and bacon tomato soup. Very good.   mjb.
 Tomato, basil cream of bacon soup. mjb.
Oddly enough I had a gyro for lunch yesterday and was thinking I should try home made pitas cooked on a charcoal grill. Perhaps I'll actually get an entry posted for this month's challenge.   mjb.
Sorry to hear about your father, hope it ends well.   mjb.
   2 pounds boneless pork butt, cut into 2-inch cubes     1 quart distilled white vinegar     1/2 cup mustard seed     1 tablespoon celery seed     2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce     1 bay leaf     6 cloves garlic, peeled and cracked (not smashed)     1 tablespoon kosher salt     12 peppercorns      Put it all in a suitable container, stash in the fridge for a few days, maybe a week. I'm sure it will be ruined if you use 11 or 13 peppercorns    mjb.
It was 103 degrees F this afternoon, and you want me to turn on the oven and bake something for hours?   Seriously, a good choice, lots of room for creativity here. I'll work on something that doesn't involve canned tuna, green beans and a certain type of onion.   mjb.
