There is nothing better than vegetables from the garden. Adam and I are lucky that my dad plants a HUGE garden every year. This year we got lots of cucumbers, broccoli, onions, carrots and now butternut and acorn squash!
We had tons of time this night so we made the squash the right way and not the easy way. Usually we just cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, place on plate and cover with plastic wrap and put it in the microwave until it is done. But the best way is to do it in the oven.
It is pretty easy if you have about 45 minutes or an hour to bake it. Just cut in half, scoop out the seeds and score the inside of the squash with a knife. The place in a baking pan with the yummy side down. Add about 1/2 inch of water. Bake until soft.
We usually put some butter and a little brown sugar on top.
