Tis the season to be jolly and eat cozy comfort food. Does it get any cozier than butternut squash? I think not.

It’s Linley here! Happy Friday, right now I am on my way to La Farge, Wisconsin to have a weekend getaway with my honey. I am SO excited. We are headed back to the Driftless region where Team Fit Foodie had a fun couple days of farm visits with Organic Valley (READ HERE)!

Quality time is one of my love languages (as well as ALL of the other love languages?), so I am really looking forward to this weekend. What’s our plan? We are going to stay in the cutest little cabin that borders 8,000 acres of wildlife preserve. We are going to sleep in, hike, play cribbage, and RELAX. We have been hustling and bustling and I feel like my body is on the verge of getting sick. The sniffles have started and a weekend of hydrating and calm energy is just what the doctor ordered.

One more thing we are really excited about is trying a hipster little award-winning restaurant called the Driftless Cafe. The Driftless Cafe is nestled in Viroqua, WI. It is known for its delicious flavor combinations and for using sustainable ingredients from farms in the region. The menu made me weak in the knees, so I will report back to how amazing it is!

Speaking of things that make me weak in the knees, SQUASH. We love our sweet potatoes over at FFF HQ, but when it is squash season, we can’t get enough! We made this butternut squash and breakfast sausage hash with baked eggs on a whim one day because we were trying to use up veggies in the fridge. We posted a photo on Instagram and BOOM. You guys wanted the recipe.

You spoke, we listened! Here is the PERFECT winter hash for you and yours. It is packed with veggies and has all of your favorite breakfast flavors. ENJOY.
