Okay guys, I know the acorn squash is not a very popular produce item. It sits around the grocery store, hardly being touched. It doesn’t draw a crowd like the tomato or the onion (and the onion even smells funny but draws a bigger crowd….what’s up with that?!!). Maybe we should give the acorn squash a few one-liners in order get the conversation going, because, come on — he’s actually pretty tasty!
Haha. But really, sometimes it’s nice to try a different veggie on the table, rather than the standard broccoli/peas/salad/etc. Don’t you get tired of those? I do.
Okay, so next time you’re at the grocery store, grab one of those lonely acorn squash, cook it up, and then add some delicious filling inside. Healthy AND packed with flavor. Yum.
