2020…To say the very least, it’s been a year. So many hardships and so much turmoil as we look around us. However, thanksgiving is coming. We might have to look a little harder, but we do have things to be thankful for.
A thankful spirit may take a little more effort but we are genuinely thankful! We are thankful for our families and friends. We’re thankful for our kids back to school! Thankful for the communities we have a chance to be a part of. Thankful for our great country we live in. We’re thankful for all the incredible foods we have access too – fresh apples from the tree, the squash harvested from the garden. As we sit and write this blog, we are so thankful!
This recipe is the perfect side dish as you sit next weekend with those you love and celebrate everything we have to be thankful for! The colors of the butternut squash and green apples echo the autumn leaves falling around us.
The rich aroma of our Fall Spice mix exude the essence of the season. Pull on your cozy socks, hug those you love and wear a spirit of thankfulness. This dish will compliment your Thanksgiving table with everyone asking for seconds.
It’s a simple dish to prepare. The hardest part is simply chopping the squash and slicing the apples!
We’re pretty sure this dish will win everyone over at your Thanksgiving table this year. It’s nutty, candied crust pairs perfectly with the texture of the fruit and veg. This dish has flavours that exude comfort and count as “soul food” in our books!
