indian and japanese acorn squash

Two different ways to bake all those winter acorn squashes:

Indian acorn squash, stuffed with fried spice mix: cumin seeds, brown mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, dried chili peppers, garlic, salt, and brown sugar. (I'd probably add onions next time to give the stuffing more body)

Japanese acorn squash, stuffed with garlic, ginger, and onion/shallots sauteed in oil, and sauce of rice wine, soy sauce, veggie fish sauce, and sugar.

falafel & eggplant sandwich

Some recently rediscovered food porn from the summer: an amazing loaded falafel sandwich from Paris's Rue des Rosiers (aka falafel street)
falafel, hummus, cucumber, lightly pickled red cabbage, melt-in-your-mouth fried eggplant, and tahini
Perhaps the best falafel in the world? (something I don't say lightly...)
