Wear Your Hat Today...It's Another Cold Day!

Although we're all yearning for Spring,
it's not here yet...another cold and snowy day!
So dress warmly today!
Here's a nice recipe to help keep you warm inside!
Butternut Squash

Cut 3 medium butternut squash in half.

Cover with plastic wrap.
Arrange about 1-inch apart in microwave oven.
Microwave at High for 18 to 22 minutes,
or until soft to the touch,
rearranging after 10 minutes.

Let stand 3 minutes.

Scoop out seeds and discard.
Scoop out pulp, discard shells.
In a food processor,
beat pulp until smooth with:
2 T. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1/2 t. salt
3 eggs
1 t. vanilla

Pour into a one-quart dish.
Microwave at High 9-11 minutes or until set,
rotating dish a quarter-turn every 3 minutes.

Let the squash stand for 8 minutes before serving.
Serves 6.
Is it a vegetable side or a dessert???
You decide!

Oh your goat just made my morning {grin}, it is really cold here to 8 deg this morning, but the sun is shining. I have made this butternut squash recipe, but learned some new, to put it in the microwave (instead of oven) Yeah!!! It looks so much quicker your way. Thanks for the recipe.

I guess it is a veggie dessert.

The squash soup looks good... I've never tried making it, but I like the microwave directions. I think one of your readers may need glasses :-) That's a sheep!

I had squash for dinner last night.....I don't think there is a way I don't like it, but sweet like this is my favorite. Never tried blending the sweet stuff in. I usually put it on top. But I bet your way is nice too since all the goodies are in every bite.

How delicious! I like what Kim said - it's a veggie dessert! Doesn't get much better than that. Thanks for sharing @ Tasty Tuesdays.

I like this method. I hate peeling it and scooping out the seeds. This way, it is all done after they are cooked.
