Winter Squash

 Blue Hubbard, or Butternut -
    A squash is a squash.
Bake at four hundred degrees
    'til the flesh is soft,
    sweet like a candy,
        healthy, and
            fresh!

    This is one of the few vegetables that really doesn't need any little extras to make it taste good. I think this is a home run description and I think you should be proud to get a placement in the contest.

    One of the better "vegetables" that has that awesome sweet taste to it. Also you can add butter and a touch of brown sugar on some squash to make them even yummier. Congratulations.

    A very original entry for Barbara's contest, Chad. I've only had yellow summer squash, but your recipe sounds delicious! Love, Carolyn
