Winter Squash Wonderland

Here's what I've been up to.  As you see we have a lot of eating to do.  Hurray for Beta Carotene and tons of vitamins and minerals! Actually what I really want is the Vitamixer,  I saw the demonstration again this week at Costco and the guy even remembered me from last May! Am I that easy to spot?(Crazy screaming children, pigtails, high heels) Yup.

Anyone have any favorite recipes you'd like to share that have winter squash in them? Can't wait to use my new cookbook Justin got me for my Birthday(can't find it on goodreads).  These squash were also totally dirty when we got them so Justin painstakingly washed them one by one.  We must have hundreds because we ended up with 300 lbs of them. We have Butternut, Buttercup and Acorn which is a pretty great variety and have very different flavors and textures.  They can be kept for up to 6 months in a cool, dark, dry place so it looks like squash for dinner every night until about March.  Easy, yummy, and healthy.
