Leave a comment

So for Thanksgiving I made this side dish. 

EASY PEASY and tasty!!

I had 4 medium sized acorn squashed. 

-Wash, Cut ends, Cut in half and remove seeds

-Slice in 1/2in or thicker slices

-Set in baking sheet or dish

•oven to 375

Glaze ingredients:

-4tbsp of Salted Butter

-8tbsp Pure Honey

-1/2 tsp of almond extract

Fishing Touches:

-spices of choice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cayenne etc. whatever you like)

-Slivered almonds

•Melt, mix, & brush both sides of the squash slices with the glaze ingredients. Sprinkle with your spice of choice (I used pumpkin pie spice. It’s got the perfect mix of spices I wanted).  Bake 15 minutes and brush glaze on again and bake another 15 minutes. 

Let the glaze carmalize on both sides. So watch and flip over to get even coloring and carmalization. 

-Serve in dish and sprinkle slivered almonds (& if you have any extra glaze). 

-I recommend using a pan vs. glass dish as the dish didn’t get that carmelization.

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
