Butternut Squash Casserole

Butternut Squash casserole
3 Cups Butternut squash, mashed
1/2 Cup Butter
2 Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1/2 Cup Raisins, optional (I don't use)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Nuts, chopped (I use pecans)
1/2 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Flour
Directions:
Mix together the butternut squash, 1/2 cup butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and raisins and pour into a buttered casserole dish. Mix the brown sugar, nuts, butter, and flour in a seperate bowwl with a fork. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the squash and bake at 350* for 30 minutes. Or untill nice and golden brown on top

Okay just in case you've never baked a butternut squash here's how;
Peel the skin off the with a peeler. This takes a little time. Slice off each end. Cut in half. Scoop out pulp and seeds, this is similar to a pumpkin. Then chop ino cubes. Place in a pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 350* until tender about 30-45 mins.This is my way of baking sqash, and the butternut squash is great just like that as well with a little pepper.

What is it?

 

Many don't know but I love taking photographs! If it's not of my kids, it's of Nature. I was scrolling through some pictures and thought it'd be fun to let people guess what this is. So lets see who gets it right=)

I got my stuff For the Fall Festival DONE!





I finally got these done for the cooking basket for my son's class. Now I can just make other things if I like. I made a matching Apron and Chef hat for an adult and child.

Here is the Pokemon Jacket!

Well I forgot to post this earlier but this is the jacket I made for my son for bookcharacter day. THis is a Pokemon trainer jacket. Don't laugh but the pattern started out as a paper bag jacket, like we did in school for Thanksgiving! I adjusted it and freely cut the collar and sleeves. I am only dissappointed in the zipper but for doing this in just a few days I think it turned out wonderful! He loves it and that is what matters the most.
