Just Squash It


Friday, it will be week five of get active..........hmmmm. I had a rest week, so I'm off the hook.

Don't forget about the Amazing Grass Giveaway!

One of the many things that I look forward to about fall, is the squash. Spaghetti, acorn, butternut, you name it, and I will eat it. At least until Christmastime, but that's another post.

This is one of our favorite veggie side dishes, Mike found it, in all places, in US Airways Magazine. We make it often in the fall, and we had a request for it for last Thanksgiving's menu. I made it tonight, and doubled the recipe, because I have to have leftovers.

Roasted Rosemary Butternut Squash and Shallots
3 cups peeled and cubed squash (I use a potato peeler to get the rind off, works really well).
4 medium shallots, sliced thin
olive oil
1 tsp dried rosemary (even better fresh)
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Toss everything. I let it sit for about 15 minutes before tossing it onto a cookie sheet, and roasting at 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Stir it around, then roast for another 20 minutes or so. The edges should be browned, but not crispy.
I'm going to eat some leftovers....

Looks amazing. Living in the south squash never gets as cheap as it does up north but I am definitely going to splurge and make this one. Found you from mombloggers 200 post goal site. Glad I did!

I can't believe it's week 5 already! I have done really well with working out the last two weeks. Last week I had 4 days of cardio( an hour a day). This week I had only 2 days(3 after I workout this evening). I feel great and I am actually getting hyped up to do more.
This squash recipe looks delish, I am going to have to try it!

Have a great weekend!

Looks great! Funny where you can stumble upon recipes. I have a big giant butternut squash staring me in the face right now so it's off to the oven for him...

Think I might top it off with a little bacon though. I'm addicted.

I've just discovered squash, as I was trying to eat more foods in season. Last week I made Ina Garten's butternut squash risotto (with a few tweaks) and it was delicious. My family ate meat and potatoes growing up, so this is all new to me. Thanks for your recipe! I will definitely try it :)

Sounds awesome. I'm going to try it this week. I just did the ARC half marathon in Syracuse on Sept 12, but walked it with a friend who wanted to do it. I got inspired and decided to run one myself and am going to try for next March! Love your blog ;)
