"Tips" in the Kitchen: Cutting a Squash

I have traveled the world and have discovered the best way to cut open a butternut squash. And now I'm sharing my secret tip with you.

Step 1: Use a very sharp knife and try your darndest to cut it open.

Step 2: Get frustrated that it's so freaking hard to cut open.

Step 3: Try again and cut more lines into the squash, still unable to get it open.

Step 4: Growl at the vegetable.

Step 5: Raise your fist in the air, swear on everything that is holy that you will cut this squash open, or so help you.

Step 6: Push the squash off accidentally from your cutting board, onto the floor.

And there you have it. Your squash will open up beautifully!

Easy, right?
