@pipeline that is my favorite way to eat it! I can eat half of one squash all by myself!
I am totally making this when I get home (or when I next pick up an acorn squash...)
Acorn squash is a great source of omega3s! This recipe sounds SO healthy!!
Acorn Squash is one of my favorite foods, just toss it in the over with some butter and you're good to go! This recipe sounds so good!
Those look delicious! I love the natural shape of the squash, it makes such a fun and pretty looking dish!
