OK, OK, I get the hint!
Apparently I need to go find some butternut squash to roast. Two of you just posted consecutive entries on my friends page about butternut squash. (Unfortunately, both are friends-locked, so you can't see each other's posts.)

Winter Food

It must be the colder weather ... a good time to put stuff in an oven and make happy roasted food !

If it helps, I'm roasting butternut squash tonight, too. Along with a chicken. I'm hungry already!!

More Squash Soup

Here's one I like to make, I stole it from the Wegman's publication -

Take equal parts of peeled cubed butternut squash and peeled cored cubed ripe pears ( Anjou, or whatever you can get that's RIPE ). Put the cubes in a heavy bottom sauce pan, and add chicken broth until just covered ( I really like the new Progresso chicken stock in the cardboard container ). Simmer gently until both the pears and squash are completely tender. Remove from heat, and allow to cool until still warm - so you don't get burned ! Using either an immersion blender or regular blender, puree all ( including broth ) until smooth. Season with a very little salt to taste ( doesn't need much ). Reheat and serve ! Yummy !

Butternut squash is good stuff! Perhaps I should get one to roast as part of a dinner soon.

Is it bad that I saw 'butternut' and read 'bittorrent'?

You can also enjoy some acorn squash, sweet potatoes, delicata, or a combo of other lovely types.

I have an 11+ lb squash to roast at home! And that's in addition to the five others I have already!
