Today I'm continuing on with my fall harvest photos.
(FYI: Workbox posts ARE coming. I have pictures downloaded I just need to find time to sit down and type when I am not interrupted with "mama! mama! This one was already typed out....so you get it today instead. :) )
We were given some acorn squash by a close friend (she lives on the other side of my hill). I wanted to do something different with it. So far in life I have found ONE recipe that allows me to eat squash without having to spend much time focusing on NOT making sour faces.
That recipe was originally written for sweet potatoes, apples, sausage, sugar, cinnamon and a bit of flour. You slice the first two ingredients, fry the sausage, layer it all in a huge casserole and then pour the other ingredients (mixed in water) over the food, then bake it until it is no longer firm. If I put thinly sliced squash into this dish we like it.
So, back to the acorn squash. I wanted to do something different. I don't like simple baked squash with butter but since I like the above I thought I would try to do the same thing only stuff the acorn squash instead.
Here's what that looked like.
First I washed the outside of the squash and scooped out the seed section.
The other hard part about this was that we adults had no problem scooping out of the shell without eating the bitter green shell. The kids were not so great at that which meant there was actually more work for us as we had to chunk it up and de-skin it.
Have you ever had stuffed acorn squash?
What is your favorite way to eat squash?
What do you do when you want your kids to eat foods that you yourselves don't care for?
Inquiring minds want to know. I keep hoping that one time I will actually LIKE squash!
