    I'm of the stab with a knife and bake whole school of thought. It's much easier to cut open once it's been cooked.

    Why do different color onions cost different prices? I can understand seasonal onions, but not the ones you can get year round.

    I don't understand that either prhoshay.
    You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.

    I've never had butternut squash, either, on its own. I have tasted butternut squash soup and butternut squash risotto and enjoyed both. My local supermarket had a 20 oz package of peeled, cubed butternut squash on sale for $1.99. I didn't know how to cook it and couldn't remember if it was permitted on my diet so I passed.

    I use baby kale mixed in with my other salad greens and I love it.
    I grow kale in the fall along with turnip greens. I mix them both together and cook. I don't use any grease to cook my greens. I boil/wilt them down in a pot of water first and then pour it all in the crockpot, season with a little bit of salt and lots of pepper and cook all day. They are always nice and tender.
    Cooked kale reminds me of spinach.

    It should be OK, depending on which diet you're following. 1 cup of butternut squash has 63 calories, .1g fat, 6mg sodium, 493 mg potassium, 16 g carbs (2.8 fiber and 2.1 sugar), and 1.4 g protein. It's amazingly high in Vitamin A (297% RDA), and has 50% RDA of Vitamin C.

    Just don't add a lot of butter ;-) (I serve it both cubed and mashed. If cubed, I add garlic and onions; if mashed, I add some cinnamon and nutmeg.)

    Butternut squash soup is pretty good. And it does not take that many ingredients. The only negative is that sometimes it can be a little sweet (in itself, the recipe does not call for addition of sugar)

    One squash makes a pretty big pot.
    You can do it!

    I don't much care for butternut squash on it's own, but cube it and it's a nutritious addition to a stew.

    What kind of flavor does butternut squash have? I take it the texture is potato-like.
