I have this in oven now, along with honey baked chicken drummies. My husband and I just "snuck" a taste. Only thing I did different was sprinkle a little nutmeg (my favorite spice) with the cinnamon. It is absolutely delicious. I have only had butternut boiled and mashed, but went to local orchard/farm store this past weekend and wanted to try something different. We will have chicken and butternut with homemade cranberry sauce. It smells like thanksgiving in here right now. Yummmm!!!!!

I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system.
