November is heavy into fall.  Leaves are darkening to crimson red and brown - some are already dropping away and leaving bare branches to fend for themselves against the cold, dark night.  The days are gray, but especially now, your food certainly shouldn't be! Winter squash are ripe and ready to eat, and there's no better time to add a sunshine burst of bright gold to your daily meals.  Butternut squash is a delicious antidote for a cloudy day, so pick one up and perk up your night!
