My sweetheart had to attend the dentist's today and ended up with a sore mouth, poor girl. As it seemed unlikely she'd eat the pork joint I'd been defrosting, on the way back from the surgery and a 50 minute delay between trains we popped into the Tesco Express near the station to find an alternative she'd like. She decided she fancied some kippers, which we bought and when I asked what she'd like with them, she was at a loss. She asked maybe some mash and peas? I noticed they had some butternut squashes so I asked "How about some butternut squash mash?" which she jumped at. So preparing the squash, I gathered all the seeds and roasted them to dry out and store for something else, but it occured to me at the time that there are lots of other seeds I discard such as lemon or orange pips. Maybe tomato pips can be dried to some advantage? I have no idea. Who else here is mad enough to save squash or pumkin seeds? What else might you salvage? Incidentally, as she was still complaing about her mouth when I began cooking the squash, I asked if she'd prefer some butternut squash soup and she said she'd much prefer it. So I have a couple of kippers looking for a home in a recipe. Any good ideas? At the moment it's looking like kipper pate.
