Thanksgiving is getting closer all the time!  It really is my favorite holiday.  I love turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and homemade cranberry relish.  I also love squash-of all kinds-so with pumpkin and butternut so prevalent, I try to use it a lot.  Oh and the acorn.  Okay, I love banana as well.

Problem-my husband doesn’t love any of them!  My kids love squash of most kinds.  Even my older grandson will eat it when he’s over.  I’m sure the younger one will enjoy homemade more than the baby food jars in a couple of months as well.  Probably sooner than that-I’m betting the little guy will be very happy to try my mashers and the sweet potatoes in a couple of weeks.

This week I’m going to have some recipes for these tasty orange veggies.  We all know that they are full of vitamin A, pretty low in calories and adaptable for both savory and sweet dishes!  They can be made into pies, breads, cookies, cheesecakes, stuffed with sausage and rice, roasted with cinnamon and chili powder and a whole host of wonderful sides.

Now I’m not even going to talk about the traditional pumpkin pie on Wednesday.  But I will give my son’s favorite pumpkin quick bread and my daughter’s favorite pureed roasted butternut squash.  

By now you all have probably figured out that I love traditional recipes with a twist and made as easy as possible-so if you have a special recipe to share, please post it for us!
