EwE - Maple Squash Mash - Fall Harvest

Unsurprisingly, fall is a prominent theme for Eating with Ellie at the moment, and Margaret has continued on with this theme with her choice of Fall Harvest (Fall Veggies).  Although it is spring here, I am quite partial to whatever autumnal vegetables that are available, and this week, I chose squash (butternut pumpkin).

My recipe was Ellie's Maple Squash Mash from So Easy.  This one doesn't break any new ground - combine cooked mashed squash with butter, salt and maple syrup.  It's simple, but tasty. I have never seen frozen "squash" here, so I just boiled up some fresh squash. It was a tasty side.

To see what other autumnal veggie treats the others cooked up, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.

Oh my this looks and sounds so good. It is definitely squash season here and I will find a place for this one asap. Your photo is just stunning of it, love the bright color. YUM! When my sister was younger she would request and eat so much squash that my mother was afraid her skin would start turning orange! lol

This would be delicious for our Thanksgiving menu! Love how it's sweetened with maple syrup!

Butternut is one of fave fall veggies. Roasted, fried like fries, and now I have to try this one. YUM!
