Acorn Squash

Last night I made Acorn Squash -- it was delicious. It tasted more like a dessert than a side (due to the butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows yummm). A wise woman once said, "A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips..." forget that! It was SO simple, and perfect for this time of year. Here is my recipe (I tweaked one I found online).

1 acorn squash cut in half, seeded
1T butter
2T brown sugar
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 F
Place squash in baking dish, flesh side up
Put a little water at the bottom of the baking dish (not in the squash)
Place 1/2 T butter in each half of squash
Place 1T brown sugar in each half of squash
Bake for 45-50 minutes
Remove from oven, add marshmallows, and place back in the oven until marshmallows are golden brown (5-10 minutes)
