this is my first experience dealing with an acorn squash.
have you ever eaten one?
how did you cook your squash?
this is what I did. [not extraordinarily difficult, so you should try it]
get a large knife and slice the squash in half
scoop out all the seedy crap with a spoon
[don't throw that away, you're going to need it!]
lay both halves on a baking sheet, peel up
bake at 400 degrees for an hour or so, until you can poke it with a fork
while the squash is roasting away, you can work on something else delicious.....
this is easy too- not as quick as slicing a squash, and your hands might get slimy-
but never you mind! roasted seeds are amazing
do your very best to separate all the seeds into a colander
wash them thoroughly
dry them thoroughly
toast the seeds in a pan on the stove, with some oil and salt
they will get all puffy when they are finished, you'll know it
and they taste like popcorn!
[but more delicious ]
so here you go
two delicious recipes from one little squash
it cost me less than $1.50 for this squash-
a perfect dinner!
