Cheesy (yet cheese-less) Butternut Squash Mash

Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot think of a better recipe to post to start off 2016. Just thinking about this sauce makes my mouth water- no lie.

Luckily, it requires just throwing everything in a pot and cooking until hot. And I swear, it looks and tastes like this dish is cheese-heavy. Yet, no cheese is used!

Not that I mind cheese, but I tend to eat an indecently large amount of this mash whenever I make it and I’d rather avoid that meaning that I just ate a block’s worth of cheese.

Hmmmm, I was so excited to introduce this recipe that I forgot to start off by saying Happy New Years. So Happy New Year, everyone! I’m not a big new years resolution person- simply because I start my goals whenever throughout the year- but I thought of a couple things that I want to start doing.

  1. Drink green tea everyday- particularly between 3pm-4pm (the time I usually begin picking at food before dinner)
  2. Listen to music more! Listening to music generally puts me in a better mood and gets me up and moving, and yes, sometimes dancing (only in private though 😉 )

Sounds simple and silly? That’s because it probably is! But these are mini improvements that I actually want to incorporate into my well-being. So, all is well.

And with that, I’ll leave you with a quote that has pushed me these last few years (and even inspired to travel to India and recently decide on new traveling destinations): “Great things never came from comfort zones.”  Here’s to 2016!
