Morrocan Butternut

Sticky delicious Side Dish ! Butternut Squash - Morrocan-Style

This is one of my favorite ways of dishing up butternut squash - Morrocan Butternut. Always a hit and requested by my family at least once every two weeks.

We had a few rainy days, which is fine by me because last week and the weekend we had temperatures up into the mid 30's (Celsius). Whenever it is raining, I am in the mood for spicy, yet not too spicy, food - especially anything with cinnamon.

I kept the dogs inside, ... the 3 (older) Maltese poodles, Jason, Freddy and Teddy, they behave inside - just huddled together on their blanket, BUT oh, Rex is a little terror!

Even though Chichi and Rex each have their own little tent, he always wants the one she is in, look at the next little collage - he is trying his utmost to get her out of there. (FYI - I love watching my doggies play and most of the day, that is actually exactly what I do ! )
