Autumnal Mash

Thanksgiving is fast approaching for us Canadians (next Monday), so tonight I experimented with a few dishes to prepare for our holiday meal with family. This dish is easy to make and tastes great (and is a great way to get kids to eat squash), and is also easy to blog. I am spending tonight working on my cookbook, so I will leave the more complicated dish for tomorrow's post.

- equal parts of:
- peeled and cubed potatoes
- cauliflower florets
- peeled and de-seeded squash, chopped
- water
- margarine
- salt and pepper

1. Place all veggies in a large pot (quantity will vary depending on how many people you are planning to serve). Cover with water, cover pot with a lid, then bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 mins, or until veggies are good and soft. Drain well.
2. Add a large spoonful of margarine to the pot, then mash well with a potato masher. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
