Scrub the squash, then peel it with a vegetable peeler.  Cut off the top and bottom ends.  Chop off the base of the squash, then split the base down the middle to expose the core of seeds.  Use a large metal spoon to scrape away the seeds and guts.  Consider baking the seeds as a snack!  Dice the squash into 1-inch cubes.
