Butternut Squash and Cranberry Dressing for The Day apres Thanksgiving
When I first moved here, I also made some sort of nod to our Canadian Thanksgiving, which takes place during the American Columbus Day holiday. Maybe I wouldn't exactly cook a turkey, but I'd remember our Thanksgiving and raise a festive Moosehead.
This year I don't even have time for beer, with increased demands at work and chauffeuring duties for children. But I did have time to imagine a pretty side dish, inspired by the colours in these gorgeous photos from October's Vogue. They're the ingredients for my butternut squash and cranberry dressing, with a dash of blueberry.
As gentle readers may note, I also grew up saying "dressing" instead of "stuffing"--and I like this distinction. I'd rather dress a turkey, and dress one's own self, rather than stuff them both.
