Also, if either Alexis or Kevin are sick tomorrow, I will have to cancel taking my Grandmother shopping. She is 90 years old, and can't get sick, it takes her a long time to get well. So we shall see how that works out tomorrow .
I made bread on Monday, with the last of my yeast, so I really need some yeast, because all the bread I made went fast, I have neighbors that I bake bread for too, and I really enjoy it too. We had a lot of chicken this week, so I am hoping the market has a better variety of sales on there meet this week.
OHHHHH, and one last thing. Someone left a crayon in there pocket, ( I won't name names...LOL)and I didn't catch it, so now my dryer and a load of clothes are all a nice shade of purple. At first I wanted to scream, and then I calmed down and thought to myself, if this is the worst that happens, I am going to be okay:) Have any of you ever washed and dried a crayon?
Classic Baked Acorn Squash (Picture courtesy of Google)
1 Acorn squash
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Maple Syrup
Dash of Salt
1 Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 Using a strong chef's knife, and perhaps a rubber mallet to help, cut the acorn squash in half, lengthwise, from stem to end. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff in the center of each half. Score the insides of each half several times with a sharp knife. Place each half in a baking pan, cut side up. Add about a 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the baking pan so that the skins don't burn and the squash doesn't get dried out.
3 Coat the inside of each half with 1/2 a Tbsp of butter. Add a dash of salt if you are using unsalted butter. Add a Tbsp of brown sugar to the cavity of each half. Dribble on a teaspoon of maple syrup to each half.
4 Bake in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until the squash is very soft and the tops are browned. Do not under cook. When finished, remove from oven and let cool a little before serving. Spoon any buttery sugar sauce that has not already been absorbed by the squash over the exposed areas.
Serves 2 to 4, depending on how much squash you like to eat.
