I don’t know when sweet potatoes overtook my love of potatoes but it has. If given the option now between a potato or a sweet potato, I will definitely take the sweet potato every time.
Well I thought it was time to also give butternut squash some time too. Together these were delicious and just sweet enough. I plan to use the leftovers to make soup.

1 small butternut squash, cut in half then again

Mix together orange juice and maple syrup. Pour on top of the potatoes and squash. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hr., turning potatoes and squash over half way through cooking.
