I don’t mean for this to turn into a “foodie” blog, but when I discover something great, I have to share it. The latest is squash. Any squash can just be pricked and put in the oven with your chicken, baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, or bread. I haven’t tried it for less than an hour, but I did have a large butternut in for 2 hours because of the chicken, and apparently over cooking only makes them better. The skin falls off, the flavor and texture are AMAZING. What could be easier? Scooping out the seeds and getting the skin off becomes cake, and the cooking is so easy. One big butternut is probably three meals worth of squash, depending on your family size.
