Butternut Squash

Dinner tonight – I took one of the butternut squashes that we harvested from our front yard garden and peeled it and then cut it to cubes about one inch by one inch. 

I picked the cubes of butternut squash into a baking dish, poured on a couple tablespoons of olive oil, a shake of sea salt, a grind of black pepper, and a shake of paprika. 


I slid the baking dish of oiled up butternut squash into the oven which I had pre-heated to 375 degrees and left it sit for about a half hour. 

After that half hour I took the dish out, melted a dollop of butter over the squash and sprinkled some brown sugar on the squash and then put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes.  

After the ten minutes was up, I took the butternut squash out of the oven and let it cool off for a few minutes. And then, I basically ate all the squash right out of the pan! It was delicious! Quick and easy and delicious. I’ll be doing this again.
