My newest obsession, don't worry kale--I have not abandoned you, is butternut squash. For 97 cents you can get a huge squash and more than a few meals.
Roasted butternut squash and apple came from Kitchen Parade, another blog on my growing list of favorites.
A few tips.
Cutting and peeling squash is hard. Cut the neck off to make it easier. Or, better yet, tell your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, mom, dad, roommate, or cat that you won't have time to peel and cube the squash, so that they will do it for you.
I came home yesterday to this.
Actually, I added the spices, but the squash was already cut. Nice!
If you are going to use a sugar-free syrup substitute, use a little extra. We couldn't taste it.
A final tip, eat it over rice, and then have enough left over to eat at parent-teacher conferences.
Extra special shout-out goes to my husband Matthew, for lending an extra hand with this meal, and for doing the dishes. As usual.
