1medium butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed
1teaspoon olive oil
coarse-grained salt, to taste
cracked black pepper, to taste
4-6cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half lengthwise
2sprigs thyme
2pounds Yukon Gold or russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2- to 2-inch chunks
1cup nonfat buttermilk
2tablespoons chives, minced

Preheat oven to 375F. Brush squash's cut surfaces with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place half the garlic and 1 sprig of thyme on a cookie sheet and cover with a squash half, cut-side down. Do the same with the other squash half. Bake until soft and tender, about 25-35 minutes. Discard thyme after cooking, and set squash and garlic aside.

Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large stockpot and cover with cold, salted water. Bring water to a boil; then reduce to a simmer and cook until a fork goes through potatoes easily, approximately 25-30 minutes. (Don't overcook or potatoes will become waterlogged.) Place drained potatoes in a large bowl and set aside.

When squash is cool enough to handle, use a large spoon to scrape flesh from skin into the potato bowl. Add the garlic and pour in buttermilk. Purée with a potato masher until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate in a covered container until ready to serve.

To serve, reheat in microwave for 2-3 minutes on high heat. (Add more buttermilk if desired.) Stir in chives just before serving.
