Fall into Squash

Fall into Squash

Fall is here! Well, not really, but I can feel it coming.  I can see it at the grocery store and a little piece of it was in my oven over the weekend. I picked up a beautiful butternut squash from the Co-op on Saturday and truly and no idea what I was going to do with it. I just knew that it wasn’t too hot to turn on my oven and I was ready for some fall cooking.  I contemplated soup, chopped something rater, basic roasting or stuffing. After a little consideration stuffed squash won. I have made a few variations of stuffed squash, you can find another one HERE on it.
