Acorn Squash In The Microwave

cut squash in half, scoop out the seeds
place the two halves face down in a covered microwave dish in the microwave
add a tablespoon of water in the dish before covering
cook on high (full power) 8 minutes

prepare 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of brown sugar together in a Pyrex 1 cup measuring cup

after the squash cooks 8 minutes, remove from microwave, uncover, flip halves facing cut side up,
while cooking the butter/brown sugar mixture in the microwave 20 seconds

pour half the mixture in the center of each half squash, then cover again

cook on high another 8 minutes, scoop out the squash from the skins and mash to the consistency desired, and serve!

Passed this on to my wife Pops. She LOVES acorn squash. She is going to try this using Swerve brown sugar substitute.
