    I made the Nov '05 menu tonight, but skipped this recipe and instead went for the roasted acorn squashes recipe with light brown sugar, olive oil, and rosemary...

    This is really good, I added more butter on mine at the table. Hubby calls me a butter baby. Could that be why I'm on a diet? Lost 50 pds so far, have 70 to go. Wish me well. Marlene
