On my friend Chrissy's blog she's having a heart treasure hunt all month, so I've been on the lookout for hearts in unusual places. Imagine my surprise when I spotted this on my plate last night:
Seriously, I just plopped it out of the dish and that's how it came out! Quite a coincidence since butternut squash is one of my favorite foods (just ask my family, every time I eat it I say "I love this squash!" No, really, I do!) Of course you have to cover it in butter, salt and pepper, and sometimes brown sugar, thus cancelling any health benefits you might have derived from the vegetable. I was so excited when I saw that my Costco sells it in their refrigerated section (you know, the area you have to run in and out of so quickly because it's so cold!) all cut up and ready to go.
OK, most boring blog post ever, I know. The funny thing is, when I found the squash at Costco I thought, "I should blog about this, it's making me so happy!" But then I thought, "That would be really lame to write about squash." So thank you, Chrissy, for having the fun heart treasure hunt and giving me the chance to declare my love for butternut squash to the world.
