Butternut Squash Fries

Only recently have I discovered a love for squash. I particularly like it caramelized in Canola oil. These fries are a GREAT idea. What a neat, and fun way to incorporate them into a meal. Thank you!

This is my first visit, but I'll definitely be back for more. You're helping to make healthy eating fun and delicious.
