    Ms Paws, your menu this week sounds fabulous, as always! Roasted butternut squash is like candy in our house, in the fall we just can't get enough of it. How do you prepare yours? I usually cut mine in half, scoop out the seeds add a bit of butter, brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg and then roast it on low for a couple of hours. Sometimes I add fresh rosemary instead - it's always so yummy. Do you have hubbard squash where you are? It might be a New England thing, but hubbard squash is my fave, it has an extremely smooth texture and doesn't need anything added to it at all. I bought seeds off amazon of all places to plant some this spring. I hope they have time to mature before the heat hits them.
    ~Enjoy!~

    I can't say we don't have the hubbard squash in our area, but I've never heard of it. I've seen a bunch of different types...even some I don't remember the name of, but I don't recall that one.
    As far as the butternut squash...I usually lightly peel the outer peeling, then cut in half. Scoop the seeds out then cut into large dices. I put them onto a sheet pan, then add a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss them around to get everything coated, then roast on pretty high heat until golden brown. I have basted with butter before, and it was -very- tasty, but...trying here and there to reduce some of the fat stuffs...
    One of these days, I'm gonna get brave enough to try to tackle a couple of new ones that I've not yet. Acorn and spaghetti squashes are at the top of this particular list...as soon as I gather recipes and how to's.

    Thank you both for the kind words about my menus!
    But I'll let you in on a little secret...If I don't have a plan in place, Heaven only knows what I'll end up having for dinner that week. These plans are the only things that keep me going as far as dinners go. Although there are some weeks...everything goes WAY down South and falls apart. :-/

    I too write out menus for the week. Last month I did almost a whole month of meals I could make with what I already had on hand. It worked out great. If I didn't have my menus I would be lost.
