Post-Thanksgiving Thai-style Squash and Fish Curry

Still have some uncooked squash left from Thanksgiving. This nummy Thai-style curry will use that up.

Squash is inexpensive and abundant in the fall. That’s why it is used in our harvest feast called Thanksgiving. You can soon get tired of pumpkin pie and squash soup.

Try this Thai-style curry to change it up. It’s heat will warm you up during the cool autumn season.
