    Kasha – looking forward to your blue potato recipe

    I have a Butternut Squash recipe to share:

    butternut – about 3lbs – peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2″ half moons
    4 shallots cut into wedges
    2 T olive oil
    salt & pepper
    1/2 C apple cider
    1.5 t cider vinegar
    1.5 t whole grain mustard
    1/8 C fresh flat leaf parsley chopped

    Preheat over to 375

    Toss veggies with 1/2 the oil and 1/2 of the S&P. Arrange on a roasing pan, turning once, until golden brown and tender – 50-55 minutes.

    Meanwhile, simmer cider in a small saucepan until reduced to 1/8 cup (about 15 min). let cool. Whisk in remaining ingredients.

    Transfer roasted veggies to a serving dish and drizzle w/viniagrette
