Pumpkins are squash, but not all squash are pumpkins.
They are all delicious, in my experience.
KH-- My husband is forever telling me about foods he "doesn't like." Like, FIL gave me some trout he'd caught (he's the only one in his family who can eat them) and Mike said, "Go ahead and try it, but I won't eat much I don't like trout." So I washed, thawed, and cooked two small-ish trout (for me and BeanBean, then about 1.5 years old). While they were frying up, Mike came and said, "Something smells really good!"
He tasted it and then was all irritated that I'd only made enough for myself and BeanBean.
The same thing has happened with Brussels sprouts, tuna casserole, egg drop soup, and at least half a dozen other food items. "I don't like that," followed by "Something smells really good," and then "Mind if I finish this?"
He's such a complete dork. You'd think that after the second time, he'd have realized what was happening. I don't like things that don't taste good! I've never forced him to eat anything, that's not my deal, but I would encourage him to taste it once (I do the same for him). In my case, I've never had to encourage him-- he smells my cooking and his mouth begins to water. It's fascinating to me because I can't actually cook.
