Baked Cardamon Squash Slices QED Delicious!



Fridays, usually mean, I am raring to go and cook up a storm.  This morning, I overslept and didn't feel any desire to hit the kitchen.  The reality is, I have no choice,  since it is right before the Sabbath and I have to cook, all that we eat Friday evening and Saturday.  Since, we are concerned about no gluten, in the dishes, it is not as easy, as going to the store and bringing dinner home.  


I had used half of a butternut squash for another dish and I was in a hurry.  I came up with, what I consider, a good solution.  It too me a few minutes to prepare and pop into the oven.  It is good food although with the sugar, I can't say it is healthy.


Here's the recipe and judge for yourself.

Baked Cardamom Squash Slices  (This is delicious )
