The pork was tender and the cranberry sauce was delicious. The simple sides of oven roasted butternut squash and frozen peas hit the spot. Costco sells a large container of butternut squash already peeled and cubed so you can make Oven Roasted Butternut Squash without any hassle! In the produce section at Trader Joe’s they also sell a bag of ready to cook squash. Yes, you do pay more for having the work already done but it’s cheaper and healthier than eating out!
