slice in half, scoop out the seeds, then decide -- butternut squash - butter - brown sugar
oven: bake in on a metal pan at 400 until kinda soft or top starts to brown. scoop out and mush together with butter and brown sugar.
nuke: top with butter and sugar, then place in a glass dish w/ an inch of water and suran wrap over top. set clock for "when looks good".
