Ingredients: 1 medium acorn squash (about 1 pound) 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces and at room temperature Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoons packed light or dark brown sugar Instructions: 1. Heat the oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. 2. Meanwhile, cut the squash in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Cut a small slice off the rounded side of each half to stabilize the halves so they sit upright. 3. Place the halves cut-side up on a baking sheet. Using your fingers, coat the flesh of each half with 1 piece of the butter, then season generously with salt and pepper. Divide the sugar and remaining butter pieces between the squash cavities. Roast until fork tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

I thought it was avocado at first, but realized it's a squash!
This is one of my favorite things to make for dinner. Just toss this in the oven, heat up some green beans, and my day is made!
Not going to lie, the best part is the bit where all the butter collects hahah
I swear I could eat a whole squash by myself!
