Easy Fried Butternut Squash

It’s been a stressful year, with a really stressful fall and really, really stressful week (so far).

I could show peaceful, soothing photos but I have the feeling they would be glanced at and ignored as people click back to the stress-inducing stuff.

I’m equally certain that no one is looking for recipes that take actual concentration to make.

The world is like a train wreck at the moment: no one wants to look but simply can’t help it.

So I give you simple food.

Everyone roasts the winter squashes and that is an easy way to prepare them but sometimes I just want to toss them into a skillet and get them done quickly.

One stress-reducing photo.

Enjoy a pile of puppies. There are actually 8 of them in there.
