Butternut Squash


I am falling for Fall!

The colors of the aspen trees turning from green to golden and flickering in the sun, the comfortable cooler weather, and the harvest of fruits and vegetables. You can see the hillside filled with spots of aspens that turned yellow and golden beside the evergreens. This picture was taken last week, and I'm sure the all the aspens have turned golden by now as we had a few chilly nights.

It is also pumpkin and winter squash season, and the grocery stores and farmers market are filled with a variaty of big, small, green, yellow and orange ones.

Bought this butternut squash because I liked the shape, and thought of making a dish out of it.What am I going to make, you think?

Will be posting tonight.

I had no idea, we didn't eat a ton of squash as kids. I can't wait though!

I just realised that when I refer to pumpkin, I also mean squash. No wonder my Canadian friend gets confused. Squash is so versatile. I wonder if you will be making a savoury or sweet dish...?

Hi Kelly,
I didn't either, but grew fond of them as an adult. :)

Hi Nora B.,
Ahhh... The word squash covers a whole group of different candidates here! :)
