One yummy meal I have always enjoyed is corned beef hash. The part I enjoy the most is the mostly runny egg at the end over all that wonderful food. This is a play on an oldie but goodie. Butternut squash is delicious and can be used from desserts to savory stars of dinner. The beauty of this dinner is it is also Whole30 compliant!

While I agree, the veggies should sing it doesn’t hurt to have them compliment well enough to get a picky toddler and five year old to enjoy the dish. The sweetness of the butternut is a wonderful partner to the spicy flavors of the beef and the richness of the egg.
The garden grew potatoes well this year. The potatoes were entirely volunteer from the compost pile and then transplanted to various raised and in-ground garden beds. So far, over 5 lbs. Which is not enough for a whole year, but several good meals!
Another popular item in my garden, the squash. Here I have had success with several squashes. Right now the cushaw is doing great. Squash is a pretty flexible veggie that can be snuck into many recipes, such as burrito style wraps.
