Fall Flavors

Last night hubby had class, so I made something for dinner that I wanted to try and knew he would not want….Acorn Squash!!

I love summer squash, but have “always” hated any type of winter squash. My mom used to make mashed up orange squash goop, and I hated it…but I decided to give it another shot and purchased an acorn and a buttercup squash last weekend.

My acorn squash turned out WONDERFUL! I am so excited for the leftovers at lunch today!

Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash

1 acorn squash
2 small apples, chopped (I used Gala’s)
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350*. Cut squash in half and remove seeds and fibers. Place squash cut side up in a baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. While squash is baking, melt butter. In a small mixing bowl combine butter, apples, brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon. Spoon into the center of the squash after they have baked. Return to the oven and bake for 30 more minutes or until the squash is tender.

This was a very filling meal! I stuck one of the halves in a bowl and ate it out of the “shell”. Yum!

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
