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.
