I find myself, once again, faced with a featured ingredient I don’t really love. Let’s be honest, this time of the year, the produce pickings are getting slim. On the bright side, this is really what Seasonal Potluck is all about. Trying new things, and learning how to cook and eat things you wouldn’t normally go for. Heck, last year we featured sweet potatoes in November, and I was not a fan. Because I was forced to try using them in recipes, I’ve now become an addict! Whaddaya know?
So, I’m willing to give butternut squash a try. Even though it reminds me of my Grandma’s gross cooking (yes, not all Grandma’s are good cooks) I will push those thoughts aside and go into this month with an open mind. From what I’ve read, butternut squash is actually considered a pumpkin, and can be interchanged with pumpkin in most recipes. Sounds like this could be a good month for baking! I’m dying to see what other people are making. Be sure to link up on our NOVEMBER page, and feel free to link up your SWEET POTATO recipes as well.
