A winter squash, banana squash is a large squash and usually sold in pieces and, therefore, isn’t all that easy to find in the supermarkets. Back when I was growing up it was a common vegetable in the stores. It was an appreciated vegetable by “us kids” and was served often. It was especially good on those cold, winter “oven meal” days when everything was cooked in the oven. The heat from the oven flowed out of the kitchen and into the other parts of the house. The aromas filled the air, teasing us with promises of good things to eat until they were done cooking. My favorite combination, was meatloaf, baked potato and baked banana squash. They all cooked in about the same time and came out of the oven together.
