Woman vs. squash

1. The squash — a blue-skinned pumpkin

    I am impressed that you were able to halve the squash so neatly – Saws-All?
    Good luck with the leftover squash and Happy Thanksgiving!

      I used a filleting knife, actually. If you get in one of the crevices, you can score it sufficiently. And then edge around the [epithet deleted] squash stem. But you need to be careful not to force the knife because there’s a danger of breaking. 🙂
