Squash anyone?

So I had a butternut squash in my cabinet for about two weeks now. I wanted too bake it and serve it with whip cream. But after many searches on the internet I could not find a simple recipe. So I decided why not? Lets learn as I go. So I saw some base recipes and first started by cutting the squash in half and scooped out the seeds. Then I peeled it and cut into 1 inch cubes. I decided to microwave cook it instead, so I put half the cubes into a microwave safe bowl and put 1/3 and a 1/2 a third cup of brown sugar in, a pinch of salt, and a dash of cinnamon in. Then I microwaved it for ten minutes, or until soft.  I also added a little bit more brown sugar because I thought it could a tad more sweeter, but it depends on the person. I repeated with the last batch and then refrigerated it. I also whipped up some whip cream, yum! So all in all it turned out really good for something I made up.

Butternut squash casserole


A little less then a cup of brown sugar

two pinches of salt

And two dashes of cinnamon

After wards I mashed it so it was more pudding like.

Whipped cream

1 c. Heavy whipping cream

1 c. Powdered sugar

One T. brown sugar

Dash of cinnamon

1 t. vanilla

Put all your ingredients into a mixer and mix until it is thick and the consistency of whip cream, then serve or refrigerate.

Hope you enjoy! I know up did;)
