Sunday Suppers- butternut squash

Simply cut open a whole washed butternut squash and roast in the oven. Serve as a side or a meal in itself. Garnish with some fresh herbs or a little maple syrup and brown sugar and enjoy. Did you know that squash is chock full of good vitamins and excellent for your skin?
My Mom always told me that beauty is skin deep!

What will you be serving for your Sunday Supper?

Love squash! Tonight we are having a friend over for lobster, corn, steamed clams, and apple crisp. A yummy Maine meal which will keep me at the gym a little longer on Monday!!!

Debra,
Thank-you for inspiring me to increase my work-out regime and to know that even if we do indulge at our own Sunday Suppers, there is always Monday to make up for over-indulging.
You really have inspired my very own life-scape!

I love squash!
As for Sunday supper this evening, we are having sliced grilled chicken w/diced red onion, lettuce and cucumber in a pita bread. Then drizzled on top is a yogurt cucumber sauce. Yummy!

LOVE butternut squash - it's my favorite of the squash family. My mother always made it, as per one of your suggestions, with brown sugar and butter. We considered it a special treat, although I don't know if the calories outweighed the nutritional benefits.

Good morning, PVE,
I love squash. I'm having roast chicken with lots of garlic and rosemary, baked sweet potatoes,
and brown rice and peas. Yum.
There is enough to share.

I love the sound of just roasted butternut squash. I'm trying out a new recipe by Heston Blumenthal.

Hi PVE, maybe this is one way I can actually like the taste of squash. I love vegetables, but this is my least favorite.

Listen, last year you said you wanted my children's book, "Tunde, the Little Nigerian Prince" signed. Did you get your copy? I'd love to sign it for you. If you haven't got it please order it directly from me and I'll for sure sign it. I'm blogging about it right now, so check it out and then you can e-mail me to order your copy or copies;) The second Tunde book is out also and it's a free e-book. Neat, eh?

Delish! I bake both acron and butternut squash filled with rasins, apples and pecans plus a little butter and either brown sugar or maple syrup. Sooo yummy!

Little confession. I'm ordering in! Just wrapped up my son's bday party, which went better than hoped. So the cook took a break. I'll put butternut squash on the menu for next week. Love seeing it in the grocery!

Patricia - MOTH & I tucked into spicy lamb koftas with hummus & tzatziki on the the side served with a big bowl of yummy fattoush salad! Lebanese food Aussie style.
It took a while to prepare, but I'm happy to report that we have left-overs for at least 2 more meals - yay!
