There is no such thing as salad season. Salads are an all year round choice you make. Another misconception is that they are boring. This too couldn’t be further from the truth. Yesterday I was craving kale. This happens to me when I have dropped the ball in the leafy green department, I start craving all things green.
The mister and I went apple picking north of the city on the weekend. We have been making an effort to pick all the things when possible. It is a fun activity that gets us out into nature and away from the hubbub and monotony of being downtown. So far this year we have picked strawberries (3 times), blueberries, apples, squash and pumpkin. Not sure if I am imagining it or not but I think hand picked tastes better.
Every time we go apple picking there is an option of taking home a free pumpkin and butternut squash. The squash we chose was gigantic so naturally my brain goes into butternut squash overdrive. I am super excited to create loads more recipes for you using this versatile veggie but for the first one, I decided to keep it simple.
There are a couple different ways to prepare a butternut for roasting. A friend of mine cuts the skin off with a sharp knife and I tend to peel it. Whatever you choose to do, be careful. I find peeling the skin saves more of the squash but you do you
