Like many adults, I don’t often have the energy to cook—properly cook—on weeknights. I know real, adulty adults meal prep on weekends or subscribe to services like Blue Apron or otherwise just power though and channel their inner chef after work, but I am not there yet.
Tonight, though, I pretended I was.
I cooked acorn squash for the first time, and after I finally pried it open—I don’t even have a chef’s knife—the endeavor went pretty well. Inspired by a recipe I found by Googling “baked acorn squash,” I drizzled a mixture of brown sugar and butter over the halved squash, and then I baked it at 400° for an hour.
The finished product tasted amazing, and I couldn’t believe it only consisted of three ingredients. I really should cook more often.
