growing up with acorn squash
I made the classic acorn squash I grew up with the other day. Squash can be a scary thing to some people. I wanted to let you know how I cook mine. Cut the squash in half. If it's really hard poke some holes in it with a knife and stick it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds to soften it. Take out the seeds and put a little bit of water in a baking dish- just about 1/4 inch. Put the squash down so the outside is facing up. Cook the squash for about 20-30 min at 350. You can test when it's done by poking a fork in it and seeing if it's soft. Flip the squash over and put a dab of butter and sprinkle of brown sugar inside. Place it back in the oven and allow to melt for a couple minutes. Take out and place in a bowl so it's easy to eat. Enjoy!
