A southern girl & food blogger


As many of you know, I live in the vast and exciting city of Houston located in the heart of Texas. There are numerous of things I like and don’t like about life in the city. I love it that there are a lot of fun things to do here, so many that I can’t share all with you today because it would take forever. However, I will tell you my three most favorite attractions, they are watching the Houston Astros baseball team, checking out the variety of museums and shopping at The Galleria Mall.

What I dislike most about living in H-town is the crazy weather, especially when wintertime arrives, close to the Christmas season, because it never snows here. If we are fortunate, maybe every ten years! Although it can get chilly here, it only stays around for a few days and then it will get hot. If you ever have lived in Houston, then you understand what I’m talking about.

Now on to the recipe

Last Thursday I made Butternut Squash Alfredo Pasta, and I still had a quite bit of butternut squash cubes leftover. So on Sunday afternoon since it was a chilly, rainy and lazy day I decided to get creative in using the remaining of the squash and made my own recipe. The butternut squash is roasted in a garlic butter and honey glaze. It was delish! This recipe would make a great side dish to go along with your family’s weeknight dinner.

Garlic Butter Honey Roasted Butternut Squash

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb butternut squash, peeled and roughly cubed and or you can purchase the cubes in packages at a grocery store
2 Tbsps melted butter, salted or unsalted
3 dashes ground black pepper if desired
2 tsp finely chopped parsley leaves
2 Tbsps honey

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil or parchment paper. Set aside

Combine the butternut squash cubes, the melted butter, black pepper, parsley, and honey in a big bowl, then spread out the squash in a single even layer onto the previously prepared baking sheet. Roast for 30-45 minutes, or until the squash is fork-tender and lightly browned. Serve with chicken or pork chops.
