Balsamic Roasted Butternut Squash and Pearl Onions

One of the exciting things about going to the grocery store on black friday (Where there are no HDTV Doorbusters or consumer stampedes) is that generally unexciting cheap vegetables that were overstocked and overpriced for Thanksgiving are suddenly VERY cheap, and widely available.  Take boiling/pearl onions.    Wednesday, November 24th, 2 servings worth would have run [...]

Warm Butternut Squash over Spinach Salad
