Savory Mashed Butternut Squash

My family had an amazing dinner miraculously made entirely by me. I honestly think this is the first several course meal I’ve done 100% on my own. *Pats self on back* The meal had savory mashed butternut squash, sweet cinnamon rice and chicken in a peanut tomato sauce. I’ll have all these recipes eventually, but here is the butternut squash:

This isn’t a picture of my own, because I don’t have my camera, but mine looked essentially the same.

1 Butternut squash

olive oil, rosemary, salt, pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half, hot dog-ways, and sprinkle the olive oil on the cut side, then sprinkle the spices. Lay cut side up on a baking tray and cover with aluminum foil. In goes an odorless odd-shaped vegetable, out comes a savory smooth side dish. (Or if you’re me or Kim, the main dish)

    SO random, but I’ve always wondered how people get the perfectly white background in food photos. Do they just have a mini studio in their homes or what?

    But yeah, squash is tasty!

      I usually assume they are stock photos, but those pictures do make me want to have my own food studio in my apartment just for the purpose and photographing my meals whenever I feel like it…
