Tomorrow's Dinner

Some friends of ours are all getting together for an evening of delicious food from various African countries.  I am making Futari, which I've heard is a popular West African dish.  It is a mix of yams, onions, coconut milk, cinnamon, cloves, and a certain kind of squash.  A kind that I don't have access to.  So I am using Butternut Squash.  I'm sure it won't be as good as the real stuff, but it sure does smell good right now.

Butternut Squash
Though similar to some of my other produce photos, the positioning of the squash on this one is quite different.  Regardless, I love all produce and couldn't help but take a picture of this beautiful vegetable.  


  1. I LOVE butternut squash! It's really good mashed up with brown sugar and cinnamon. =) Hope your dish turns out AMAZINGLY! =) It sounds really interesting and good!

  2. Me too! It is rather versatile, too! I make a pretty awesome ginger butternut squash soup. yumm..if only it wasn't so hot out, I'd spend my evening making soup.

    And the Futari did indeed turn out well. Everyone seemed to like it. If you want a recipe for it, just let me know.
