When I get to the end of the harvest season there's a bit of panic in me - did I eat enough? Did I use the vegetables well enough? Did I get enough fresh tomatoes? And then the panic subsides and I'm able to enjoy the vegetables of the fall season. The brussel sprouts, the multitude of winter squash. I was thrilled to find Butternut Squash Seed Oil @Allofoils and treated myself to some as well as picked up a great recipe with Butternut Squash. So I thought I'd share it with you here at the end of the season.
