Snow...


And finally Winter, with its bitin', whinin' wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.

Delicious...

Butternut squash recipe.  I made this tonight and it was so yummy!  I got the recipe and photo here.  I didn't make a paste, I just sprinkled everything on the oiled squash because I found this recipe after it was already in the oven with olive oil drizzled over it.
