Recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato (Side Dish)



This is a fab little side dish that can be adapted to so many meals by changing which herbs / spices you use with it. We've used curry, cumin & garam masala to serve with a curry, garlic and oregano to serve with pan fried chicken & tomatoes, rosemary & thyme to serve with roasted meats... you get the idea. It's just so versatile! And very simple to do too.

You need:


  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium sized butternut squash
  • Your own choice of herbs / spices


How to:


  • Heat the oil in a roasting tin.
  • Peal and chop the sweet potato into 1 inch squares, I like to par boil them but that's a personal choice.
  • De-seed, peel and chop the butternut squash to the same size.
  • Once the oil is hot add the sweet potato and squash, sprinkle on the herbs / spices and carefully toss to coat.
  • Roast on a medium high heat for 40-45 mins or until tender and just starting to brown on the edges.


As simple as that!

You could also use this as a base for soup. Transfer to a large pan, add two pints of vegetable stock and blend. Serve with crusty bread.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
