Eat Your Vegetables!!!

One thing I love about southerners is their ability to take a questionable vegetable, add the right amount of sugar and butter and make it dessert. Tonight we had chicken, green beans, rolls and butternut squash casserole. (or "Squad" if you ask Sammy.) The casserole really did double duty as dessert, and if you don't believe me, here's my proof. All, and i do mean ALL, of my children tried it. Four of them liked it, including Wyatt Henry, who asked for more! Ben gave the only "thumbs down", but the boy tried it! Anyway, here's the recipe. Enjoy!

Butternut Squash Casserole
1 medium to large butternut squash
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 c milk
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp. coconut flavoring

Peel and chop squash, discard seeds. Boil until tender, drain. Mash (you need about 2 cups mashed squash). Combine all ingredients. Pour into lightly greased 1 1/2 quart casserole and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until fimr in center.
