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.
1 tablespoon butter spread over acorn half
1 tablespoon brown sugar sprinkled over acorn half
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.
