Spiced Rum Punch & Curried Winter Squash

My sassy single client is having a holiday party for singles. She wanted quick & easy recipes from me, but recipes that she also wanted to hand out at the party which I think is a delicious idea. I came up with two great recipes that I am sure will be a hit. One for a curried winter squash that will really kick up the taste buds and then there is the spiced rum punch that will truly get the party going. Kosher soul will the all over the shindig.
