I love butternut! To celebrate that, I will be posting not just one, but two butternut recipes today! One savory, one sweet.

After my friend Heather and I had our epic journey to the farm and Heather picked a butternut squash with her own hands, we set a date to make dinner.

I was transported back to the days when she’d stand in the doorway while I cooked, watching and asking me questions. A little foreign to me, as I am usually a loner creative. It stretched my comfort zones, and I realize I miss it. I miss having company at home, while I am making something new.

If I were to do this again my suggestion would be: boil and puree butternut squash on my food prep day (Sunday) or make and freeze up some pizza crust ahead of time.
In the end we were all VERY happy with our result and Heather and I had the satisfaction of eating something we had foraged ourselves. Continue reading “Gluten-Free Butternut Pizza and Butternut Pie”
