Cinnamon Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

Hey guys!!

 

Sorry for the lack of posts, we’ve been out of town. We actually went up to Lake Chelan in Washington for a wedding-it was beautiful!! Did a little wine tasting too. Wine tasting with babies is not as much fun, fyi :).

Anyway, I tried something new the other night: acorn squash! I have yet to try kabocha squash-which everyone is obsessed with. One of these days I will…I don’t think the store in my town sells it though. So for now, acorn squash it is!

The first thing I did was microwave the squash for about 2 minutes just to soften it up before cutting. Then, I cut it in half and scooped out the seeds.

Next, I filled a 9×13 pan with about an inch of water and placed the squash flesh side down in the pan. I cooked these bad boys at 375 for about 45 minutes (or until it’s soft).

Once the squash was done, I sprinkled it with cinnamon, a little splenda/brown sugar mix, and butter. It was awesome! I’m pretty sure anything is good with cinnamon, sugar, and butter.

So good! I had a half with a chicken apple sausage and roasted red pepper (another one of my favorite things).

I love how many different kinds of squash there are. There are so many options out there: sweet or savory!

 

Do you like squash? What’s your favorite kind?
