Goodness Gracious! It's almost winter! That's right folks, it's still fall...for 10 more days...and this is the perfect recipe to whip up this weekend to enjoy as you sit in front of the fire going over your budget trying to figure out how to pay for Christmas! The mister informed me he was not going to play Santa this year...as if...and said I would have to take care of Christmas with my earnings. As you know, I work for the mister at our business...a job that I have yet to receive a paycheck for - ever - so I reminded the mister that Washington is a community property state, and as such, the company checkbook is half mine...then I did what any self-respecting slave would do, I paid myself a Christmas bonus - ipso-facto - problem solved.Now, about this recipe...it would have been another perfect side dish for our T-day feast! If only I'd known about it in time! And now that I do know about it, it will be the perfect side for our Christmas feast! I want you to go and check out the original post Savory Corn Crumble with Butternut Squash, Spinach and Feta from Ivy of Kopiaste. Ivy's blog is inviting, interesting and full of fabulous recipes!
In Ivy's recipe below you'll see she uses butternut squash, and in the directions she tells us to "grate the pumpkins"...um, don't do what I did and panic...I have no pumpkins! I only have squash!! As I have recently learned, half the world calls squash pumpkins and pumpkins squash! I am giving you Ivy's recipe exactly as she wrote it, with permission, and I hope you'll make it...and if you run out of fall, just know this would be perfect for winter, too!Savory Corn Crumble with Butternut Squash, Spinach and Feta, recipe by Ivy Liacopoulou of Kopiaste…to Greek Hospitality
