I decided on squash. Now, I've never much cared for squash, but thought that with all that blogging and cooking, I must be much more sophisticated now. Stay tuned for the results
Roasted Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash, halved, and guts removed
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
cinnamon to taste
I rubbed the other ingredients on the squash, and put them "face" up in a baking dish with a little water in the bottom. I cooked it with a cover at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, I removed the cover and cooked for 10 more minutes.
The verdict: I am apparently not sophisticated enough. I didn't like it. At all. Matthew kindly said "it was not his favorite". Unfortunately for him, still no ice cream for dinner. I had luckily whipped up some easy healthy fried rice.
Backup Fried Rice
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 clove garlic(!), pressed
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tbsp soy sauce
I scrambled the egg in the oil, and added in the garlic and pepper and sautéed it for about 3 minutes. I added in the cooked rice and the soy sauce, and VOILA! Fried rice to the rescue.
But the fun didn't stop here folks. I decided to be the world's greatest teacher and make muffins for my show choir tomorrow morning. Yeah, you heard me. Middle. School. Show. Choir. Nothing could be further from Glee. I stole an Applesauce Muffin Recipe from Martha, I followed it exactly, so no need to type it out. Mostly, I'm lazy from all that cooking.
Don't they just scream, "I'm so goooood! I promise to behave all day long, Mrs. Fleming!"
In case you wondering, yes, the garlic is GONE!
