Butternut squash keeps for pretty long on my counter, so I always love to use it to decorate my countertop during the fall season. It helps to add that warm and cozy feeling to our home.  

Some of you may already have all this stuff in your kitchen cabinets. The next time you’ve got a big squash sitting on your counter staring you in the face, go ahead and cook up this curry.
