Squash Mania!

Yes, the word "squash" doesn't necessarily conjure up ideas of deliciousness, but this recipe from The Good Housekeeping Cookbook is great!  

Maple Butternut Squash

Prep: 20 minutes  Cook: 20 minutes

2 medium butternut squash (2 lb. each)
1/2 c. maple syrup
4 T. butter, cut into pieces
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper

1.  Cut each squash lengthwise in half; discard seeds.  With veggie peeler, remove peel, then cut squash crosswise into 1 in.-thick slices.
2.  In a sauce pot, heat 1 inch of water to boiling over high heat.  Add squash.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer until tender (about 15 minutes).
3.  In large bowl, combine squash, syrup, butter, salt and pepper.  With mixer at low speed, beat until smooth.  ( I put it all in the blender and added a bit of water.)  Makes 10 accompaniment servings.
