Oh my gosh! I completely missed a week. I'm so sorry! The holidays are always busy here and I plum forgot to sit down and work on the site. Time to fix that and hopefully with some recipes that you'll really enjoy!

Did you know that you can cook side dishes in your crockpot? Yep! Some may take a smaller one than you usually use but it can be done! Let's get started with one of my fall favorites that can be made anytime that squash is available!

Ingredients:
Acorn squash
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 pinches of salt

Directions:

Cut the squash in quarters, and scoop out the seeds and stringy pulp. Put 1/2 Tablespoon of butter and 1/2 Tablespoon of brown sugar into each quarter. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon onto each brown sugar pile. Add a small pinch of salt to each quarter.

Lower the pieces into your crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, or on low for about 3. The squash is finished when it is fork tender and peels away from the skin easily.

Yum!
