Butternut & Beyond

Our leaves may not change color here in Vero Beach, but we’ll help you get into the fall spirit with three autumn squash dishes 
Stuffed acorn squash

All around the country, November marks the start of the holiday season. Here in Florida, it marks the long-awaited “real” start of fall. The days begin to feel shorter and the temperature finally starts to dip enough to require a light sweater. It’s also the perfect opportunity to start cooking more autumnal recipes, like a hearty soup with all the cozy feels. 

With Thanksgiving around the corner, perhaps this month finds you entertaining guests. Why not wow them with a dish that looks as good as it tastes? Acorn squash with colorful stuffing is both delicious and show-stopping. In fact, it might just be the perfect way to shake up your usual turkey-day spread. 

For those nights when you need an unfussy supper with minimal prep, try our spaghetti squash boats and let your oven do all the work. Because the holidays also tend to bring with them a bit more indulgence, it’s nice to have a few new healthy-ish recipes in your back pocket. You know — the ones that taste great but don’t make you feel lousy the next day. We think these three winter squash dishes fit that bill and will be a welcome addition to your fall table.
