Butternut Squash - Fresh of the vine

I have never quite paid much attention to Fall vegetables until now. Harvesting these butternut squash have made me a convert. While the frost last week killed off the plant I had to harvest the vegetables even though they hadn't fully ripened. But fresh is fresh.

All the squash needs to ripen, so the rest are sunning near a warm window while one of them was given to a friend while the other one was cooked into a soup with some navy beans seasoned with pepper and cayenne pepper and spiced with onions and garlic and with some chicken stock. Delicious at dinner time and more so at lunch time.

The other two should be ready soon and I am looking for some new recipes to try.
