IMG_0164 ButternutHere’s something really easy to do and your family won’t know if it’s a savory or a sweet. It’s amazing how a little olive oil, salt and pepper can transform a squash into something tasty and elegant. Brush on a little brown sugar, and garlic that has been sautéed in butter and broil it and see how this amps it up a bit more. By the way, it has not gone unnoticed that today is the day of the pumpkin, but I am sure that she will share herself with her cousin- the butternut squash. Enjoy!!!
