Acorn Squash is Actually Delicious

In an effort to eat out less, Brian and I have been trying to cook with new things to keep our meals fun and interesting.

This acorn squash recipe is so amazingly easy and tasty, it turns out a little bit like sweet potatoes but much easier, cheaper, and probably with fewer calories. Plus it looks freaking fancy, so you'll impress the heck out of the people you're cooking for. We got this recipe here !
1 Acorn Squash (feeds two)
2 T Brown Sugar
1 T Butter or Butter Substitute

Step 1: Buy an acorn squash. They're super cheap, we got ours for $0.89. Preheat the oven to 350.
 Step 2: Cut your squash in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. This part is very similar to hollowing out a pumpkin on Halloween, what fun!

 Step 3: Turn the two halves upside down on a tray with a lip and bake for 30-45 minutes. Basically until they're a little soft and mushy and look like this.
 Step 4: When they're soft, pull them out and turn them right side up and place 1 T of brown sugar in each half and 1/2 T butter or butter substitute in each.
 Step 5: Bake for another 30 minutes and then enjoy their tasty goodness. They are seriously amazing!
