I love butternut squash soup. Low fat chicken stock, simmer the squash and onions. Add nutmeg, salt and black pepper. Finish with low fat yogurt in the bowl.

I love sweet potatoes! They're like my current obsession. Lately I've been baking them and then letting them cool and serving them with just about everything. They're really good in an egg scramble with sauteed onions, peppers, and garlic; spinach; smoked sausage, and eggs. I'm thinking I might have that for dinner. :)

I love mashed sweet potatoes. Just bake, peel, add some butter and cinnamon (or other fall spices) and mash. Enjoy!

Pumpkin - cut into slices and roast it with a spritz of olive oil and sprinkle of salt. Roast the seeds and munch on them for a snack. Pumpkin curry is also one of my favorite dishes. Am a pumpkin fiend!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

My favorite is the Acorn squash too, like Kris. I halve it and spray it and place face down on a foiled, sprayed cake pan and bake. Then I mash and add butter, brown sugar and salt. To a huge batch, I add a wee amount of the butter, brown sugar and salt and then I can eat it more healthy like that and the rest of the family adds alot more butter and salt at the table!! I freeze it in 2-cup portions too with the wee amts. Works well. Yum! emoticon I have to tell a little something funny about me too! My favorite pie is pumpkin, but..........I love it best made with the canned!! The fresh can be more stringy or something. Maybe if one processes it more fine. emoticon

I'm starting my ticker over with going low carb.

persimmon pudding...now some of you may have no clue what I'm talking about. Where I grew up, we have wild persimmon trees and the persimmons are ripe right now. We would gather them (you want the ones that have fallen off the trees, the others are super bitter), process them, then freeze them in containers containing 2 cups of pulp. Then pull that out and let it thaw, mix up a pudding (not sure why it's called pudding because it's more like a heavy cake) and bake it. Some people put whipped cream on it, or ice cream. My family (from the impoverished hills of southern Indiana) poured cold milk over it and ate it with a spoon. Ahh...childhood memories...

It's not the healthiest way to eat it, but I love acorn squash made like this: cut in half, steamed upside down in a shallow pan of water, then mix butter and brown sugar in the center and broil until kind of carmelized. That's the favorite, but I usually just scoop it out of the shell and mash it with a little bit of butter.

I love baked sweet potato with Brummel & Brown (butter made with nonfat yogurt, 1 tbsp. = 45 calories). emoticon

What's your favourite fall vegetable and your favourite way of preparing it? (if it's something with multiple varieties like squash, please choose your favourite kind)
