The labyrinth looks wonderful this morning as I walk out to get the newspaper. It kinda glows in the morning light. Nice to have it back. Cooler these days, especially in the a.m., but by noon you are taking off the sweaters and rolling up sleeves; then by 4pm they are back on again.
To find powdered peanut butter, check the natural foods aisle at the grocer. The most common brand of powdered peanut butter is PB2. If you strike out, get online or try a health food store; it's widely available from web retailers.
(5 lb)pound butternut squash, peeled and seeded
Heat the oven to 350 F. Coat 2 rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.
Cut the peeled and seeded squash into bite-size pieces, then place them in a large bowl. Drizzle the squash with the olive oil, then toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the powdered peanut butter, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. While using a silicone spatula to toss the squash, sprinkle the seasoning mixture over it, continuing to toss until all of the squash is well coated.
Transfer the squash to the prepared baking sheets, using the spatula to scrape the oil and seasonings from the bowl. Arrange the squash in an even layer, then roast for 25 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the squash, then roast for another 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender.
