Squishy Squash...

One of the fun things about going over to Momma's house is that she always feeds me.  My mom is the best cook I have ever known.  Lately she has been amazing at feeding me healthy foods.  One of these foods has been butternut squash.  Oh yeah made this momma's girl happy and satisfied! 

Start with your squash.

Cut off the ends.

Slice down the center.

Clean out the seeds and other stringy innerds.

This is where the Fat Lady in me would put real butter and brown sugar, but the new and improved me, ShrinkaDink, puts nothing inside.

Wrap each one in foil and toss in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until tender.  Momma puts a pan under hers in case of drippage, but I have never had a problem.

When done baking, remove foil and fluff up with a fork and scoop the good stuff out into a bowl.

 Squirt some spray butter all over it and salt and pepper to taste.  This 0 points + veggie is so delicious, I could eat it every day!
