 Mary suggested never adding water to veggies when you microwave them.  
 She said it is unnecessary since they naturally contain a lot of water.
 We discussed trying precooked (to soften) potatoes or squash with this 
 recipe.  I think I will try it this fall when the squash comes out.
 I really liked this dish.  I treated it as my dessert because it has 
 that cinnamon apple flavor.  Yummy.
