And you know what? you can really make this 12 months out of the yr because this recipe makes use of canned butternut squash puree!


Did you men understand this even existed? I had no idea that they had those handy cans on the grocery save – I’d always puree butternut squash myself, almost losing a finger or hand inside the manner of reducing up the ones tough squashes.
