Hooray for winter squash! Hooray for cooler temperatures! Hooray for the oven, that keeps the whole house cozy and warm!
There's no better way to warm up on a cool day than to bake--why not bake up some squash? A lovely acorn squash cut into wedges and de-seeded are the perfect canvas on which to paint with extra-virgin olive oil... then whatever you please!
After the oil, I drizzled these generously with maple syrup and dusted with salt, black pepper, nutmeg and just a touch of cayenne pepper. After about 30 minutes in a 350*F oven, they were deliciously soft. A perfect autumn lunch!
