I love root vegetables… all kinds of potatoes, acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash…the list goes on and on.
So, tonight, I was super pumped to make the butternut squash I had gotten earlier this week.
I was excited to top it with with some butter, cinnamon, and Splenda brown sugar. So, I followed a recipe for guidance as far as temperature, and time in the oven.
Well, I am not going to link the recipe because it was an epic fail. I cut the squash in half, took the seeds out, and cooked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I also put a little salt, pepper, cinnamon and butter on the squash.
It did not evenly cook the squash. It was not enough time to cook the squash. And it was a huge mess. I had to cut it up, and microwave it to finish it off. Cutting it up when it is 400 degrees is no easy feat.
But, it was delicious once the mess was over!
Well, I don’t have any pictures, and I am barely awake following parent/teacher conferences last night, so I am just relaxing about to read some blogs on my google reader. I still have tons of magazines to read. ha ha…..
Have a good Thursday night!!
and tomorrow is TGIF.
I am taking my niece and godson to see the movie, Wreck It-Ralph tomorrow after school. They are two of the most tender hearted children I know. My niece is in first grade, my godson is in 2nd grade. I am looking forward to spending the afternoon with two of my favorite people on this earth!
