If this were a normal year, Josh and I would be getting ready to travel back to Connecticut for Thanksgiving to be with his family. Unfortunately for us, (and the rest of the world) 2020 is not a normal year. So rather than take part in larger Thanksgiving traditions, we’re going to be creating our own traditions for just the two of us (and Punkin!) this year.
While I’m so sad to not be spending time with family and friends this Thanksgiving (and getting to eat all the New Haven pizza!), I am looking forward to creating our own menu. Josh and I love a lot of the same foods and I have a feeling the recipes we use for this Thanksgiving will be on our menu for many more holidays to come.
Josh and I both love mac and cheese, but I can find the cheese, cheese, cheese flavor to sometimes be one-note and something that my taste buds can burn out on very easily. Am I crazy? Probably! But this year I was on a mission to make mac and cheese I could eat bite after bite and never grow tired of.
Friends, I am so happy to share I did it! The stovetop butternut squash mac and cheese is perfection. It’s cheesy (duh!) but also so well balanced in flavor with a nutty and sweet butternut squash flavor. It’s ooey and gooey and warm and cozy and everything you want in a holiday dish. Seriously, if you’re looking for a new mac and cheese dish to try I can’t recommend this one enough!
