this was yummy! loved the lime butter. I only used one squash, so two halves and just approximated on the the ingredients. I would probably skip the addition of water while cooking in the oven next time. I usually cook acorn squash and zucchini cut side down without water and it comes out great. these got soggy. pictured with oven fried honey chicken made with lemon herb panko from whole foods.
