Perhaps it is stuck in my head as this has been the longest in between posts, and I feel like this song almost applies to me and the blog! But don't worry the reason I have seemed to be singing "bye bye" is because I have been working on TONS of recipes! So many that I have created a collection for this fine holiday we have coming up that is centered all around gratitude and food!!!! Check this out:

Tahitian Squash Bites (or Butternut Squash)
serves 6-10 as an appetizer
1 large Tahitian squash (or butternut squash)*
½ cup green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons tamari (gluten free)
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon brown rice vinegar
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the squash into rounds (about and inch thick). Rub the pieces of squash with a little bit of oil and place in a large baking dish. Cook the squash for 40-45 minutes.
While the squash is cooking mix together the remaining ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.
Once the squash is finished and has cooled to a handling temperature peel the squash, and cut into shapes (I opted to make little circles); then plate on your serving tray. Using a pastry brush dip the brush into the sauce you made, and brush a little of the sauce on each piece of squash. Then using a fork or slotted spoon scoop out the green onion and place on top of each squash piece.
*Tahitian Squash looks very similar to a butternut squash but has a darker coloring on the outside, and has a sweeter taste. Making it ideal for these little bites.
