Wing it Wednesday - Butternut Squash


I think of all the squashes, the butternut squash is my favorite one.


The difficulty with the squash is the shell surrounding it is so difficult to cut into.


This video describes how to pick a squash and also a simple way to soften the outside so you can cut it with great ease.


I also made a Butternut squash soup today too.
