Blow The Dust Off The Recipe File

The month of October has arrived, and with October comes cooler weather.  Cooler weather leads to heartier and richer appetites and it's now we leave the cold cuts behind opting for stove-top and oven creations.

In this week's ad, one of our features is winter squash such as acorn, spaghetti, and butternut among others. 

If you have never tasted butternut squash then you are in for one taste bud exciting dish and we're including a recipe for this delight.
