Date Night: Autumn Themed (NOVEMBER)

I wanted this date night to reflect the gorgeous colors and flavors of AUTUMN!

To begin this board you will want to want to start by roasting 4 sweet potatoes and 1 acorn squash.

  • To prepare the sweet potatoes, wash them and puncture the skin with a fork all over the potatoes.

  • To prepare the acorn squash, cut both ends off, cut it down the center, and then scrape out seeds and insides, leaving just the acorn squash to roast.

  • Drizzle olive oil all over the vegetables and then sprinkle salt and pepper over JUST the squash. Roast in a 400 degree oven.

  • Remove ONE sweet potato half way through baking (it will be still slightly firm)
