Last year I was a beer girl (appropriate for my German heritage haha) - this year I haven't quite decided...any ideas?
In honor of upcoming Halloween, here is a yummy pumpkin recipe. Well, OK... butternut squash. A very simple recipe!
Dice up the butternut squash or whatever squash you like best. I have to say that this is definitely the hardest part of the recipe, especially if you peel it. What a pain! You need a big sharp knife and strong wrists.
Once you have your squash cut into cubes or slices, throw it on a baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and salt. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes until the squash pieces are softened and golden. Just before it is done you can toss in some chopped garlic and rosemary for extra yumminess. Or instead of rosemary, try adding a dash of cumin, and fresh cilantro on top with a squeeze of lime. YUM!
This is a great side dish or I even add it to salads. It is a wonderful thing to have in the fridge for making lunches, or eating with leftover meats. It's one of my staples in the fall months.
Do you like butternut squash, pumpkin or other winter squash? How do you cook them?
