Baby Food - Acorn Squash

So I was trying to think of more veggies to introduce to B, and most of the ones I have left our doctor/I've read to wait until 8+ or 10+ months to introduce SO I figured we would do up another kinda of squash since Broden likes his butternut squash so much!

This squash is probably one of the most easily recognized and most often eaten. It does have an acorn shape to it along with deep furrows. The acorn squash is typically a deep dark green however there are some varsities that are yellow or orange. If you find and acorn squash that has orange or yellow splotches on it, this is indicative of it's quality.

With a sharp kitchen knife, cut the acorn squash in half - lengthwise.  Scoop out the seeds and lay squash "face" or meat-side down in a baking dish with about 1-2 inched of water.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 40 minutes or until shell/skin looks puckery and turns darker.
