Salad Dressing-Thank You Amanda

I am an excited new member of your neighborhood garden and I wanted to share a salad dressing recipe that is delicious with the pomegranate and perhaps even the lettuce. I like adding walnuts, feta cheese, etc.

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of ketchup
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup oil

Put sugar, ketchup and vinegar in mason jar and mix...then slowly add the oil. It is simple and very tasty!

Roasted Butternut Squash


* 2 medium butternut squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
* 4 teaspoons butter
* 4 teaspoons brown sugar
* Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place butternut squash halves on a large baking sheet flesh side up. Place 1 teaspoon butter in the middle of each squash. Sprinkle brown sugar over each squash. Season with salt and black pepper. Roast 25 minutes, until flesh is fork-tender. Reserve 2 halves for future meal.
