Thanksgiving Acorn Squash…

Last Thanksgiving I tried something new for our family meal…Acorn Squash.

Only I wanted to prepare it a little differently, more “festive” is the right word.

It turned out DELICIOUS and everyone enjoyed it, even those who didn’t think they liked acorn squash.

Not only was the acorn squash delicious, but it looked great on everyone’s plate.

You all know we eat with our EYES first…

 

Ingredients: 

 Acorn Squash

Walnuts

Craisins or Cranberries

Butter

Cinnamon

Nutmeg

Brown Sugar

 

Let’s Begin… 

First, cut your acorn squash in half and remove the seeds.

BE CAREFUL!

Then cut each half in half, you now have 4 sections of acorn squash…

Add a pat of butter and a tablespoon of brown sugar to each section.

Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Microwave on high until the center of each squash is soft and tender…

In a small frying pan, melt some butter.

Yes, MORE butter!

Then add the walnuts and Craisins or cranberries.

I love Craisins…

Then add this mixture to the top of your cooked acorn squash…

Now doesn’t that SCREAM Thanksgiving to you?
