Roasted Brussels & Butternut Squash with Dijon

This is by far my easiest and most favorite Fall dish right now. I seem to always have these ingredients on hand so putting them all together is quite easy. I think I’m actually quite obssessed with sprouts right now. Funny because I HATED them as a kid and thought they smelled like farts when cooked. Okay, maybe they still smell a little like farts but those little farts are tasty! Despite the sprouts overdose in my household lately, I would gladly indulge in this as a side dish or mixed in with meat. I happen to really love it with turkey.
