How To Make Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

I love the flavor of butternut squash, which makes a great addition to soups and stews. As you may have noticed, in a lot of my recipes I tend to include thyme as a part of my seasonings.
Thyme for a Jamaican is like basil for an Italian. It's an integral part of our cooking and we use it in most of our savory dishes, if not all. So I had to include thyme in this curry!
