Honey Roasted Acorn Squash with Thyme

Honey Roasted Acorn Squash with Thyme

September is upon us and I am one happy lady. What’s not to love? Baking, brisk weather, leaves changing colors, pumpkin anything, holidays, cooking low & slow, and warm sweaters. It’s been really chilly here this week, so when my friend Currié gave me an acorn squash, I decided to roast it. I slathered it with a bit of butter then simply seasoned it with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper before drizzling with honey and a sprinkle of fresh thyme leaves. I served this honey roasted acorn squash with our lunch and my kids gobbled it up… they both said they loved the honey/butter combination. I loved it too!
