Fall Squash Pumpkins

All you need is Butternut Squash, nutmeg, cinnamon (or whatever spices you enjoy), raisins for the eyes and mouth and pieces of walnut for the stem.

Then just scoop about 2 tablespoons out and make a small ball with your hands. Poke raisins in as eyes and a mouth and a piece of walnut for the stem.

This makes a great side dish with dinner or as a snack.

The nutmeg and cinnamon give the squash a sweet taste so it actually also goes well in ice cream.
