7 Thanksgiving Recipes and Butternut Squash Casserole

Today we have Great Thanksgiving Recipes from the past and a new one for a Butternut Squash Casserole, which was amazingly good.  Two of my kids said I don't like squash, but I'll try it, they loved it.  This new recipe was a big hit, so you can safely add it to your Thanksgiving menu.
