Autumn Acorn Squash

Autumn Acorn Squash

One of my favorite (and most used) websites is definitely allrecipes.com.  Even though it’s not yet fall, I found a recipe for Autumn Acorn Squash that I have been wanting to try!  As usual, I made my own version of the recipe I found based on what I had in the kitchen and personal preference.  Brad is very picky when it comes to anything including vegetables, but after this meal he said he was completely sold on acorn squash!
