Roasted Balsamic Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

Roasted Balsamic Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

I like most variety of winter squash, but Lo isn’t a big fan.  He’ll eat a squash dish if I make it (usually), but he’s not a big fan…just a good sport.  And he probably won’t eat leftovers, so I’ll be like – why have […]
