There were two things that happened this evening that I was very happy about and grateful for. The first was having WARM, clean, soft towels after the shower. I was just thinking that it was such a simple thing, but so much nicer than being cold and using damp towels. I know, kind of silly. But then I was thinking about how incredibly blessed I am to even have a shower, and it got me thinking about people all over the world who live in harsh, dirty conditions and have never experienced the luxury of a hot shower. So, I am very, very thankful. Oh yeah, oddly enough, Joe said the same thing about how much he loved clean, dry towels when he got out of the shower today. Funny, huh?
The second thing is this: butternut squash fries!
How could I have gone without these?! I used a butternut sqaush from M&D’s garden and pretty much followed the EASY recipe and directions here. Instead of using 4 T of olive oil, I just used 2 T and sprayed my pans with the oil in my Misto just in case it got sticky. Hit ’em with salt and freshly ground pepper. Wowza. They are yummy. Joe loved them too! Success! 400 degrees, 45 minutes, switch the pans halfway. I used 2 pans so that they had space to roast all nice and lovely. (The picture shows a lot of them-I dumped the two pans together.) Mmmm…
