I have never had an acorn squash before and I really did not know how to cook it so I went on Tasty Kitchen and found some yummy recipes. This is the one I stuck with. The little green guy never saw it coming.
So start with the tip of the knife in and work your way across to split the squash in half.
With a spoon scoop out all the insides. I saved the seeds so that I may one day have my own acorn squash. Maybe not.
Sprinkle in a little salt. Put in a dab of butter. Everything is better with butter. Then sprinkle in some brown sugar.
