This morning's use it up inspiration which quickly became a late bfst/brunch is the cup's worth of leftover, organic, roasted Red Kuri squash. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_kuri_squash) I purchased it directly from my original CSA farmer in the late Fall. It was my last one. Delicious. Not wanting to waste anything at the moment, I set my mind to figuring out how to use this up, deciding upon waffles, substituting the squash for pumpkin in the following recipe.

 I turned to my Grandmother's circa 1935, GE waffle iron that I cherish. I had my now DX rewire it years ago at the cost of a whopping 11 cents from the local hardware store.
First one out, they smell so good! Warm, real maple syrup and additional butter will be offered to those eating breakfast here.

I once attended a Vegetarian Cooking class and she used her waffle iron to make a variety of dishes that looked very appealing. She made "waffles" out of polenta and made hash browns in her waffle iron. Your Red Kuri waffles look terrific! :)
