{food} butternut squash coconut curry

When searching for recipes to use up my three huge gifted squash, my husband requested a curry. So I began searching for just the right recipe. Had to have a coconut milk base. Had to be simple. Had to have interesting spices. And this, a combo effort between a couple bloggers and me, is it!!

The garam masala, fennel seeds, and coriander give this curry just the flavor I was looking for. It is really really good.

And super easy to make! Cheers! Applause!
