Lee and I have been obsessed with everything squash this fall. Don’t worry, sweet potatoes are still lee’s go-to hearty vegetable, but I could be swayed. Among all of the different kinds of squash, I have to say that butternut squash is my favorite. I love all of the different ways you can cook it up. You can roast it (read more about that HERE) and use it as a side dish or for an easy meal-prep vegetable throughout the week. It is also super easy to prepare pureed butternut squash and leave it in your fridge! Using butternut squash puree in baked goods or having it on hand for soup is so helpful.

It really is as simple as that! Get yourself a warm and crunchy piece of bread and you are ready for the easiest and perfect fall meal!
