Oh wow, this month has flown by! I seriously can’t believe it is already Feb. 28. And, already time for another Mystery Dish post! The amazing Christine from I Dig Pinterest picked the ingredients for us this month. They were:

Pork
Spinach
Cream Cheese
Pineapple
Butterscotch Chips
Macadamia Nuts
Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
Ritz Crackers
Tortillas

Usually we just roast our butternut squash – toss it in some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast for 20 mins at 400 degrees.  Simple and delicious.  But I decided to branch out with my latest butternut squash purchase and make potstickers.  Wow.  Amazing.  New favorite recipe!  This was my first time making potstickers and I have to say, I was pretty darn proud of myself.
