Crock Pot Acorn Squash

For Thanksgiving with my mom and my little family, I am in charge of making sides. I thought this was the perfect time to try making some squash in the crock pot.

Acorn Squash
Butter or Margarine

I cut the squash into quarters and scooped out all the seeds pulp. (I'm going to try toasting the seeds. Perhaps they'll be like pumpkin seeds!) I smeared butter all over the quarters and sprinkled them with salt. Popped 'em into the crock pot on low for about 3 hours. SO easy.

My family doesn't particularly care for sweet squash, so that's why I just butter and salt them. A lot of people like their squash sweet so I found this awesome brown sugar and cinnamon recipe.
