Butternut Squash Timbales with Warm Apples Slices — 9 Comments

  1. I don’t like squash. The only squash I’ll eat is pumpkin and that has to be in a pie. BUT! We went to Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village which is just outside Dearborn in MI and, as we do every year, had dinner at the Eagle Tavern. First course was Butternut Squash Soup. I dared to try it and…LOVED it! So maybe my taste buds are changing a bit. Who knows?

    I wish I was sitting in front of the fireplace but alas, our new home still doesn’t have one. Soon, I hope.

  2. I love squash, but don’t buy it here much, although it is increasingly available.

    It is darn cold isn’t it? Here it hovered below freezing all day, but Rodez being Rodez, it was absolutely unbearable — I went into town for lunch with remaining daughter and there was a definite wind chill factor going on big-time.

  3. nightsmusic, I used to be the same, buy my hubs loves vegetables of all kinds and I learned it’s all in how I fix them LOL

    Betty, yesterday we had fierce wind and it was awful. Today, sunny, calm but cold. I no longer like winter LOL

  4. Been cold here too. Had a blizzard warning on top of Mauna Kea with high winds. I wish there were a way to judge a good winter squash. Some are tasteless and many terrific. Any ideas on how to judge a sweet, nutty one???? Curious in the middle of the Pacific.

  5. This is such a unique recipe! I’m pinning this to my winter squash board for inspiration. I still have two baskets of all types of squash to get through this winter and this looks like such a neat recipe to try!

  6. Phoenicia, love to hear about blizzards in Hawaii LOL. I have no idea on how to pick a squash at the supermarket. From my garden I just leave them on the vine as long as possible. But the ripe ones look the same as the unripe usually.

    Kate, 20C would be nice…. We haven’t been above 5C all week.

    Ina, thanks – and Happy Holidays!

    LeAndra, thanks – I love making timbales. Pop them in the oven and forget about them for 30 minutes.

    Amy, I still have lots of them too…. Time to get creative, Thanks
