As moms we can all relate to having a neglected home. You’re used to seeing a kitchen sink full of dishes and laundry that hasn’t been folded or put away yet. After all, you’re busy caring for a newborn baby, feeding, changing diapers, and staring lovingly at her all day. It’s okay. Stare away, soak all this time in. Their tiny cheeks, their sweet babbling, and contagious laugh. Neglecting the home is normal.
That’s why I love this recipe. It’s easy and tasty for you and baby. Simply pop your butternut squash in the oven, go back to your baby, and when it’s done baking, you and baby get a snack. I call that a win-win.
