Acorn Squash

Yippee, it’s that time of year again, when we eat lots pumpkin and squash! I picked up a bunch of golden acorn squash. I decided to make them up the way my mom did when I was a kid. These are more like candy than veggie!
Ingredients:
4 Acorn squash
½ stick of butter
8 tsp of brown sugar
Sprinkling of nutmeg
Sprinkling of cloves

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375. Cut squash in half and remove seeds and stringy parts. Put them shell down on a baking sheet and add a pat of butter to each one.

We serve them just as it comes out of the oven. Only difference is that we smash the squash into all the juices!
