So I discovered Acorn Squash ...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

... and I love it ! emoticon

That's baked Acorn Squash stuffed with apples, craisins, honey and cinnamon, based on this Spark Recipe :

Thankfully, I didn't burn down the apartment in the process. emoticon emoticon

However, baking ended really late yesterday and now I'm feeling a little fuzzy-brained. Need to catch up on sleep emoticon

The new meal plan from the Head Trainer includes a treat day once every week. I've decided to use that day to try out new recipes. My goal is to learn as many yummy, healthy recipes as possible emoticon emoticon

A friend tried my dish at lunch today and said it tasted like something he'd eat at Christmas or Thanksgiving. Score ! emoticon

He only got one bite. I polished the rest off all by myself !

    Excellent goal! To learn yummy healthy recipes, that is. For me, that's been a fun thing to invest my time in - researching what goes into snacks and treats, and looking for things that suit my diet and give me the most bang per calorie. Your baked acorn squash looks incredible!!! :-D

    Acorn squash is one of my fall/winter go toos as a comfort food. When growing up we used to have this all of the time. DH is not a squash eater (no matter how it is made) so I get to eat it all by myself :) This recipe sounds like a winner to me. Have to give it a try. Glad you liked it. Keep finding those terrific healthy recipes.
