We needed another side, and I wanted something with little prep work. Fortunately for me, I'd found this recipe from Loving and Learning on the High Plains. I also had some acorn squash. I usually try not to get acorn squash since it has all those ridges! Sure they look pretty, but they take a bit of time to work around. Fortunately (or unfortunately), I didn't think about the ridges until too late. And as they say, "in for a penny, in for a pound," right? Once you get the acorn squash peeled, you'll want to spray it with a bit of oil. I thought the moisture from the squash would be enough to get the cheese to stick. Unfortunately, it's not quite enough. I just gave it a quick spray with the Misto. After you've given the squash a quick spray, just dip it in the cheese. I added a bit of garlic powder for extra flavor too.

Which foods do you tend to avoid just because they take too long to prepare?
