Corn and Butternut Squash Chowder

I took this from my Sister Alicia's Blog and it is so yummy!! But then again, what isn't good with creamy butternut squash??

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch chunks (about 5 cups)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 box (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) vegetable broth
1/2 cup heavy cream

In a large heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high; add squash and onion. Cook until onion is soft, about 6 minutes. Add corn and curry powder; cook until curry is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add broth and simmer until squash is tender, about 25 minutes. In a blender, blend half the soup until smooth. Return to pot and stir in cream; Add nutmeg to taste, a dash or so. heat through over medium-low (do not boil).

Roasted Veggies

Mmmm... One of the easiest and yummiest side dishes ever!

Vegetables such as: butternut squash, mushrooms, zucchini, potatoes, etc.
Olive Oil
Seasoning Salt

Preheat oven to 475.
Cut veggies into chunks (the smaller you cut, the faster they'll cook) Place on cookie sheet or in cake pan and drizzle olive oil over the top. Sprinkle your favorite seasoning on top. Sometimes I use Johnny's, sometimes I use Mrs. Dash, it all depends on your mood. Toss your veggies around so they get mixed around in oil and seasoning. Bake at 475 for about 20 minutes depending on how thin your veggies are. Check after about 15 minutes for tenderness.
