I decorated the house in October with Autumn colors, and the centerpieces were gourds, pumpkins, and squash.  So here is is several weeks later, and I have changed the decor to Christmas--but what to do with all of the squash?  I decided to roast the the Delicata squash with a holiday twist--cranberries!

Delicata squash is one of the few winter squashes that don't have to be peeled--the skins are soft enough to eat, so they are perfect for simple roasting.  This recipe also works well with sweet dumpling squash (which I also had, but decided to just roast the Delicata this time.)  And the cranberries add a terrific pop of tart.  

So here is a wonderful winter side dish--easy and healthy!
