Super Simple Dinner

I seem to be on a food quick this week. Its not really that shocking because none of what I'm sewing can be shared yet, so we'll just have to make do on food. :)

Here's a  super simple dinner that we had last week. The squash takes some time, but its so worth it. I love that Acorn Squash is back in season. I love Acorn Squash. So I'm going to share this recipe with you. Its from Taste of Home, of course. :)

Honey-Spice Acorn Squash
Grocery Stuff:
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger
2 medium acorn squash

Cooking Stuff:
In a small bowl, combine the honey, butter, salt, cinnamon and ginger. Cut squash in half; discard the seeds. Cut a thin slice from the bottom of squash with a sharp knife to allow it to sit flat.

Place cavity side-up in a greased baking dish (make sure your squash fit into it). Fill squash halves with butter mixture.

Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour until squash is tender. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer.

Now I paired this squash with shrimp. Not your usual pairing, but its what we wanted. For the shrimp I just threw something together. Here's what I did there

Throw together Shrimp
Grocery Stuff:
1-2 lbs peeled and deveined uncooked shrimp
1 tbs olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
dried thyme

Cooking Stuff:
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until the olive oil is nice and shimmery. Add the garlic and let sit for a minute or two before adding the shrimp.

Once the shrimp is about halfway cooked add several good shakes of thyme to the pan. Serve warm.

The shrimp takes no time at all to cook. 3 - 4 minutes top, so its a nice after thought when you realize that you can't just serve acorn squash. :)

I hope you guys have enjoyed! Have a great day!
