Fall is a Time for Acorn Squash

Acorn squash is plentiful in the fall.

Acorn squash is very easy to make. It’s also delicious, and one of my favorite fall vegetables. My daughter Roni loves it too, but we like our squash different ways. I like it with butter and salt and pepper; she likes it with brown sugar and butter.
Acorn Squash
Serves 2-4
1 acorn squash
4 tablespoons butter or Smart Balance
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut squash in half or quarters. Remove seeds. Put a little butter (or Smart Balance) in the hollowed-out center. Then add brown sugar or the salt and pepper. You can actually use both options at the same time (sugar plus salt and pepper), and it is very good, too. Bake for 45 minutes to one hour until the meat of the squash is soft. Serve hot.

About Lois

My husband, Don Crawford, and I love to cook. For me, it's more about eating delicious food than the actual cooking. I like to cook mostly because I like to eat, and I like the proud sense of accomplishment when the food I make is appreciated by others. For Don, it's all about presentation. So we make a good team. I'm too impatient to create beautiful presentations (usually), but he sweeps in and takes over so it all turns out great. All our recipes are tried and true!
