Baked buttercup squash from our garden
They are so good and flavorful, there are only 4 left but there are 6 butternut squash. Like them almost as well. When we split a buttercup squash, we really don't need anything else but a green salad. I really prefer mine just oven baked with butter in the cavity, don't need any other stuffing. I didn't say those weren't good, just prefer plain old buttered squash flavor. Later, we will convert some butternut to soup and pies, actually prefer it to pumpkin. Seems that none of our extended family likes nutmeg which seems to be a preffered spice for such pie but cinnamon and allspice work just fine. Must be a gentic thing, absolutely nobody in the family can tolerate the taste or smell of nutmeg.
