Roasted Acorn Squash

Hello friends!

It was quite an eventful week in Boston last week. The red sox won the world series and there was a Champions Parade last Saturday to celebrate their victory. C and I went with a couple of friends to the parade and it was packed. However, it was great to see all the excitement!

It was my first time going to a parade to celebrate a team’s victory and I really enjoyed it! I love seeing all the fans line up to cheer for the team and to see the team themselves.

I was really glad to be apart of something as special as this.

Alright, now let’s talk about food. Last week I made roasted acorn squash since I bought two acorn squash from the farmers market for only $1!!!

This was my first time making the acorn squash for C and I to try. I tasted acorn squash before back in college, but I have never made it myself. However, I did remember liking it very much so I decided to give it a try.

The squash was really easy to make and was really delicious too. I used butter and brown sugar to drizzle over the squash, which created a nice glaze over the squash.

I then roast it for 50 minutes. The squash turned out great and was even better when I assembled it in a salad, which consisted of sautéed kale and 4 oz of baked chicken breast.

So delicious and healthy! C also loved the squash as well and he is not a vegetable lover. I can’t wait to experiment more with acorn squash and other squash as well!
