I decided to try this combination, after seeing it on SkinnyTaste online. They recipe simply states to add 6 sprigs of fresh thyme and black pepper. Well, in my opinion, it needs more flavor, such as garlic perhaps. Anyway, I had the butternut squash in my freezer, and it needed rotated out, so I thawed it and used that. The squash cooked to a soft texture, but it was all good. I will try fresh butternut next time, and add garlic powder or even sliced shallots or onions.
What are you cooking for your fall side vegetable dishes?
Thank you for the tip on freezing chicken rice soup. I found a recipe that I will be trying during our next cold spell. It is on another blog, and the recipe is here: Wild Rice Blend Soup.
On another note regarding medicinals, has anyone used a blend of turmeric and honey for illness? It's not a jar method, but mixing ground with honey and using on the spot. I'm just trying to be prepared. Two weeks of feeling ill was not fun, and we want to have many options on hand if people start spreading sickness again.
