Default Butternut squash (from Hungry Girl)

So, I'm trying to make these butternut squash fries from Hungry Girl, and I have a question about the preperation of this squash!

It said to peel it, which I did. But there seems to be another "layer", that's tougher than the top layer, before you get to the "meat" of the fruit. I didn't peel that off--was I supposed to? Should I eat this part, or not?

I've never made butternut sqash before, so I have no idea what I'm doing!

I just peel the outer part and it hasn't killed me yet. Mmmmmmmm, now I want to make them, but it's too hot to turn on the oven.

Excellent, That's what I did, and I didn't die either!

They were very good, but the taste and texture did not, in any way what-so-ever, resemble french fries! But a keeper, all the same.
