Gourds, of course
You gotta get yourself some gourds -- you won't regret it, sitting around in your apartment staring at gourds with funny faces carved into them. Where have all your friends gone? To gourd-free climes, which is unfortunate because they're missing out on all sorts of benefits from beta-carotene.
OK, so technically there are some differences between gourds and squash and all that jazz, but we're talking about the kinds of squash you can eat. And there's almost an infinite variety! Try roasting butternut, Thelma Sanders, gray kabocha, carnival, Sucrine du Berry, Honeynut, red kabocha, Bernie Sanders, nuthoney, and flan! Only some of those are made up.
