what grows together goes together

As I was cutting the yellow squash for our curry tonight (no more curry fails, we went with an amazing pre-made sauce from Trader Joes that we've used before and loved), I started to wonder whether we could incorporate any of our other veggies. I knew that bell peppers are generally found in thai curries, but I couldn't imagine the combination of green peppers and yellow squash. But of course they pair nicely, because we got both in our CSA box last week - what grows together goes together. As if I needed more than a catch-phrase to convince me, listed in the Flavor Bible under bell peppers was "squash - especially summer squash". So there you have it.
