Butternut Squash Bliss

Oh, it feels so good to be home! We had a great time at Disneyland and California Adventure. Lots to see and plenty to do. Not much great to eat though. Well, that is unless it’s shaped with Mouse Ears and smothered in chocolate or some other yummy goodness. But who can live on that all day?!

I woke up this morning on our first day back home with an urge for the comforting scent of roasted butternut squash in the oven.

I just threw together some chunks of butternut squash I had in the fridge with melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Then I roasted it at 350′ for 45 minutes.

The smell of roasting butternut squash was amazing! Which I have to admit was a bit better than it tasted. Next time I’d probably skip the salt and pepper. But it was still edible and well there’s nothing better than that wonderful Fall smell wafting throughout the house. It’s like a little peak of Thanksgiving dinner!

For other Butternut Squash ideas I’m going to try some of these next time from Martha Stewart. Let me know if they work for you!
