I love so many things about this weeknight dinner, consisting of Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, and Smoked Turkey Sausage. Sometimes the best meals are the simplest!
1. Inexpensive – This meal fed two for under $7, or so.
2. Seasonal – Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts are in season right now (which also helps lower the cost.)
3. Easy – I am convinced that roasting is the easiest and most delicious way to prepare so many veggies (such as kale yesterday!). I roasted the butternut squash for about 50 minutes, and the Brussels Sprouts (tossed in EVOO, salt, pepper) for 30 minutes, both at 400 F. The Smoked Turkey Sausage (I refer to it as “kielbasa”) I simply broiled in my toaster oven.
4. Nutritious and Low-Calorie.
Butternut Squash is one of my favorite things; I was scraping the peel clean of every last squashy morsel. Mmm mmm!!! And if you don’t think you like Brussels Sprouts (as I thought for 24 years, until last year), I challenge you to try roasting them.

Currently listening to: Telling Ghosts – Puscifer.
There are SO many songs on the radio lately just I just CANNOT stand. Yes, I am talking about you Moves Like Jagger, Pumped Up Kicks, Adele remixes (wthell!? why!? so unnecessary), that “la la la la laaa” song. Ugh!
