The joke is on them!
There are so many reasons to eat fruits and vegetable in seasons. For example, butternut squash offers plenty of health benefits, here are a few ones:

Glazed butternut squash, a delicious holiday side dish!
Glazed butter squash,
I don’t participate in Thanksgiving and the other end of the year celebrations, but that doesn’t mean I don’t envy those beautiful spreads that friends and family enjoy for those occasions. Some people can get quite creative!
You don’t to have family over all the time to share meals and laugher. Although I haven’t seen my family for almost ten years now. I only speak to them over the phone. I always seize any occasion, or none in particular to share some good food!
One of my favorite Fall side dishes is this glazed butternut squash. It’s pretty simple to make with leaves plenty of time for me to make other sides, if needed. It’s delicious and goes really well with some Grand Marnier!
What to expect?
This butternut squash has a luxurious flavor to it due to the Grand Marnier but tastes as wonderful without it!
