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’ve 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 !
