Fabulous Fruit Fridays!!! ~ A Day Early ~ Squash Are Fruit

Hey everyone I know I'm a day early with the post. But it's Thursday evening and I thought that since I'm up early and don't have time to post before I go to work that I would post instead before bed. Some of you who are in Europe are still asleep anyway so I don't think the early post will matter in the whole scheme of things.
Did you know though that Squash are actually classified as a fruit!!! Yes it's true. I had a little niggle and thought I would investigate my thought process. I knew that Tomatoes are a fruit because they bare that lead me to believe that foods that we call Vegetables who have seeds could actually be a fruit. So foods like Pumpkins, Squash, Zucchini's and Tomatoes although we associate them as Vegetables they really are a fruit. Cool isn't it!! So since I have such a lovely fall theme going here I thought I would throw this into the mix. Happy Friday everyone. Oh and before I forget....I had a hard time deciding which photo to post I like them all. So I posted them all even though they all look very similar, I just couldn't decide :)
