recipe: roast cinnamon squash and beets

after trying the roast squash, sweet potato/yams and apple dish, i found this roasted squash and beets recipe and knew it would be a good side dish as well. the apple cider vinegar and cinnamon gave it a nice aroma. while the original recipe included maple syrup but i didn’t think it was necessary so i just skipped it.
