Crystal's Birthday and Squash...

 Time is just flying by!  June seems to be a really busy birthday month. Our daughter Crystal turned 41!!!  Can you believe it?  Not me...I'm only 62!!Hahaaaa.....child bride! WHAT???Hahaaaa
Also go over and wish Donna of Cottage Days a Happy Birthday!  The birthday bug bit her to!
Now THIS little puppy is the squash. Acorn squash!  This recipe was delicious...Wash the squash and dry.  Cut it in half, (NOT an easy thing to do so BE CAREFUL!)  scrape out the seeds and string.  Butter the insides by hand.   Pour in 1/4th cup of whole whipping cream in each half.  Sprinkle with Thyme and salt and pepper.
Bake at 400 for one hour.  Take out of oven carefully....and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (either the store bought in the shaker OR the grated will work).  Sprinkle to YOUR taste!  Also, baste the top sides with the cream using a spoon so the cheese will stick more easily.
Bake for 15 more minutes.  WaLaaaa!  Watch's hot!  Hubby and I did the other half in butter and maple syrup and brown sugar.  He liked them both but I liked the savory one.
Serve with any meat or eat all by itself...We had them for Sunday lunch.
Well, guess I'll get busy and come visit you....Hope you have a super day!
