Its Winter and a great time for squash.

I ran across this recipe and thought it was just the right answer for a hot dinner on a cold night in the Rocky Mountains.  Not many written instructions needed.  Photo story will do the trick.

  1. That looks delicious! It also looks like a lot of work :). I’m posting about squash, too, in the next month sometime (only do one a week so get ahead of myself sometimes). My recipes are easy peasy, though, so as to encourage the kids in the family to try their hand at it. Thanks for the nomination! I’ll post an official thank you in two weeks.

      • Oh dear… all my recipes aren’t that easy after all.Just the squash ones! I’ve found out kids don’t like to chop much. Mom ends up dong that part. AND the ironing.

    • You’re welcome on the nomination! I hope more people will discover your great blog. You know, I don’t think there are many kid-friendly blogs around – I’ve looked. I started one myself but never seem to have time to write for it. Maybe I will get going on it now.

  2. Well Hello Brian and everybody reading this! Brian is a friend of mine and someone who enjoys writing and blogging. (Check out his blog, Timor-Leste Images, on my blog roll to the right! I invited Brian to be a guest author here on Mycookinglife.com and here he is today! Thank you so much, Brian! I absolutely love winter squash and yes, it is fantastic wintertime dinner food!
