We had butternut squash from the WallaceHomestead Garden. It was delish!
My dear cousin was...um...intrigued by how I was preparing it. I don't take the time to try to cut it in half and clean it out and all that nonsense. The shell is too hard anyway. I just toss 'em in the oven at 350* then go out to chore. 45 minutes later, I come in to hear them steaming and whistling at me. It makes a bit of a pocket between the skin and the meat, so I'm able to just peel it. (Carefully--it's hot--no joke!)
Then toss the pieces in a cassarole dish, add salt, pepper and bake for another 20 minutes-ish (while the rest of dinner is cooking-pork chops and sour cream "all-rotten" potatoes, and homemade bread-in the background)
