 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2   lb           Butternut squash
                         -(up to 5 lb)
    1                    Carrot (2 if use
                         -more squash)
    1       c            Rolled oats
                         -(uncooked oatmeal)
   12       oz           Green peas
    1       T            Butter
    2                    Eggs, beaten
                         -frothy
    1       pn           Salt
    5       T            Cinnamon sugar
                         -(or less)
      1/2   t            Vanilla
 
   Boil squash and carrot together until the carrot is tender.  Allow both to
   cool.  Slide skin off carrot.  Being careful with squash, remove its seeds
   and peel. Blend carrots and squash together. Don't over-blend: preserve
   some texture. Add cinnamon sugar and salt to taste.
   
   Add frothy eggs to carrot/squash mixture.  Grease an 8-inch loaf pan.  Coat
   the grease with oatmeal.  Mix about 1/2 cup oatmeal into casserole.  Gently
   fold in green peas, then put mixture in casserole pan.  Sprinkle remaining
   oatmeal on top and dot with butter.  Bake at 350 degrees F. 30 to 40
   minutes until brown on top. Once cooked, it can be served immediately or
   frozen for later consumption.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Butternut squash and carrot casserole -- A delicious Thanksgiving or
   Christmas casserole.  My mother makes this at the holidays.  I don't know
   where she originally got the recipe.  Yield:  Serves 10.
   
   *  Cinnamon sugar is a mixture of sugar and powdered cinnamon.  Commercial
   cinnamon sugar mixtures are mostly sugar.  My mom prepares her own mixture
   with the emphasis decidedly on the cinnamon.
