I mentioned to you all how much I LOVE Delicata squash. YUM. That is what inspired me to make this lovely dish! I highly recommend making this the day after Thanskgiving with your leftover turkey! If you want more ideas, don’t forget about my Thanksgiving Leftovers book. It’s inexpensive and has some great recipes for soups, sandwiches and salads that are all GAPS legal. Anyways, let’s get on with the recipe!
