Veggie Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago Mr Mike bought this butternut squash, but he was clueless as to how to cook it. It was very quick and easy. An extra set of hands would help a lot with cutting the squash. This is a very sweet and tasty dish which won't heat up the house. Sorry about the picture I forget two year olds are ready to eat when you put them in the high chair. I don't know how Jon, Kate and Nadya handle all those kids. Maybe they struggle just like I am struggling. Here is in inexpensive dish even a two year old will enjoy.Netts Butternut Squash

1 butternut squash
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Cut squash in half long way. Scrape out all of the seeds. Cover each half with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for five minutes. Remove from microwave and scrape out the squash from the shell. Put in microwaveable bowl and add honey and cinnamon blend together with squash and cook for five more minutes. Just before serving slice butter over top of squash.

My kids grew up on squash like this and I am totally embarrassed to say that I never (even once) thought of microwaving it!! Duh, do I feel stupid!
