Acorn Squash...MM MM Good!

Acorn Squash for dinner...Happy birthday to me!!!

Today a received a package from my sister with a beautiful wind chime and a homegrown acorn squash.  It must be my birthday!  I was so excited about trying another recipe that I cut it in half (no, the hubby cut it in half because I don't need an ER visit on our budget) and added proper seasoning and in the oven it went.
I found a great recipe online, of course and I've included it below.

SWEET and SPICY!
Acorn on the right : Sweet.  Acorn on the left: Spicy.

Sweet recipe:
1 tablespoon butter spread over acorn half
1 tablespoon brown sugar sprinkled over acorn half

Spicy recipe:
1 tablespoon butter spread over half acorn
1 pinch of sea salt sprinkled over acorn half
1 pinch of pepper sprinkled over acorn half
Paprika sprinkled over acorn half

Preheat the over to 375 degrees.  Add 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pan so the skin doesn't burn.  Cook for 50 minutes or until flesh is soft.

This sounds good. My daughter roasted one using the sweet method and she said everyone loved it. I did not get to try it.
