PASTA WITH WINTER SQUASH AND A SIMPLE PESTO

PASTA WITH WINTER SQUASH AND A SIMPLE PESTO

I did have something I was going to write about but it has disappeared. Poff, is no more. I sometimes worry about being so prone to forget, it comes with having a mother with Alzheimer’s disease and a father who suffered from another lighter form of dementia, and even though I know my way of forgetting is different from their way of forgetting I sometimes worry. But it irritates me a lot. Sometimes I have a feeling that I’m living my life in eternal circles, I start something, see something else which makes me remember something else which in its turn makes me associate to another something and so I go on until I finally get back to the first thing and maybe, maybe manage to finish it. I often find a trail of unfinished tasks in my trail. Not to speak about the things I do without paying attention to it, like going out and suddenly finding myself with two different slippers and not the shoes I was supposed to put on. Forgetting children etc. I know I’m not alone so feel free to do a good deed, make my day a happier one at the same time as you reassure me by telling me about what you have done in this field.

Winter squash again. Never give up do I but this is really very good. I think I could eat it every day right now. I used the black spaghetti because it looks so nice colour wise but you can obviously use normal pasta for this, the taste is the same!
