This is a butternut squash. If you haven't had it before, you're missing out.
I had dessert all planned out. We were going to have panna cotta... I had all the ingredients ready to go. So when dinner was done, I got ready to whip it up for dessert. And then I remembered. It has to set in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Brilliant, Sarah... always thinking ahead *sarcasm*.
So we ended up having our dessert the next day. But it was worth the wait.
Panna cotta (Italian for "cooked cream"). It's basically a kind of custard... a very delicious kind of custard. I topped it with raspberry sauce (which is super easy to make by the way... throw some raspberries sprinkled with sugar in a bowl in the microwave for a minute and hey presto raspberry sauce).

...and I just realized I haven't posted since the last Menu Monday... fail. I'm going to have to start distinguishing between the titles.
