Butternut Squash Fries

I’m not a big “cooked from scratch” girl, even though I’d love to be. I get to cook something homemade maybe, once a week. However, in reality, I’m a pretty darn busy Mama bear and always doing something, answering to someone else, or seeing to other people’s needs. 

But, now the children are back to school, it’s just Belle & I at home, thus, giving me some  extra time slack to bake/cook a little more, which excites me. So this week I managed to bosh together a delicious batch of Butternut Squash fries. 

I’ve started making Miss Belle some lunchtime snacks, and this week I’m starting with Butternut squash. Now, butternut squash isn’t something I’ve ever tasted {or intend too! I’m fussy!} but it’s healthy, nutritious and perfect for any growing child. 

Butternut Squash fries is a super easy recipe {even for a kitchen newbie, like myself!}. All you need is a fresh butternut squash, cut it in half, scoop out the inner seeds then cut them into “sticks”. Once that’s done, place some baking paper on a baking tray, lay on your sticks and drizzle with a little Olive oil and finally pop into the oven at 180 degrees until golden brown {20 mins or so} – easy peasy!Butternut squash friesButternut squash fries
Annabelle really enjoyed these and I reckon I’ll make them for her again soon!

    Don’t think i’m into Butternut Squash, but definitely do some more home cooking now we’re back into a school routine.

    They do look yummy. I might give them a go. I’m thinking sweet potato fries would be nice too!
