When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, there are plenty of dishes that we love. We’ll fully admit that we’re pretty partial to the carb heavy options, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love vegetables too! In fact, there are all kinds of vegetables we adore. We actually like vegetable dishes so much that sometimes we pick out seasonal things and make them in lots of different ways all season so that we really get to enjoy them in diverse ways. In the fall, for example, we don’t just make seasonal vegetables for Thanksgiving dinner alone; we make them all autumn long so we can get the most out of it! So, what’s our very favourite fall vegetable to make seasonal dishes with right now, you ask? We’re completely in love with squash!
