Acorn Squash for dinner...Happy birthday to me!!!

Today I received a package from my sister with a beautiful wind chime and a homegrown acorn squash. It must be my birthday! I was so excited about trying another recipe that I cut it in half (no, the hubby cut it in half because I don't need an ER visit on our budget) and added proper seasoning and in the oven it went.

Acorn on the right : Sweet. Acorn on the left: Spicy.

Sweet recipe:
1 tablespoon butter spread over acorn half
1 tablespoon brown sugar sprinkled over acorn half

Spicy recipe:
1 tablespoon butter spread over half acorn
1 pinch of sea salt sprinkled over acorn half
1 pinch of pepper sprinkled over acorn half
Paprika sprinkled over acorn half

Preheat the over to 375 degrees. Add 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pan so the skin doesn't burn. Cook for 50 minutes or until flesh is soft.
