I’m Still Not a Grownup….

To this day (50 some years later) I remember gagging….whining…..complaining….shoving it around my plate to avoid eating it….when Mom served baked acorn squash.  She would cut it half, sprinkle it with brown sugar and butter, and bake it.

I hated it.

So, when I saw acorn squash in the grocery this week, at a good price….I opined to myself that it was my immaturity that caused me to dislike it as a child.  My tastebuds were surely not sophisticated enough.  So, I bought two.

We roasted them tonight….sprinkled with brown sugar and butter.

Guess what!  I still hate them…..

Back to potatoes and rice for my unsophisticated palate…….
