Butterkin Squash?

I harvested the unknown squash this morning.  Here are two of the eight I cut from the vine.  You can see the pumpkin resemblance.  So butternut squash or butterkin (a portmanteau of butternut and pumpkin), I prepped one for roasting for lunch today.

One interesting thing I learned from about this type of squash.  You can harden them off and then store for two to three months.  Hardening off and proper storage are important for storage.  The link suggests warmer temperatures will create the thick, tough rind.  I'm going to place these in the upstairs as summer temperatures are a little in this location.
