Personal Acorn Squash Bowls

This is what my father, my other little sister, and I had for dinner. (My step mother decided to have a boring tuna melt.)

2 acorn squashes
various stuffing ingredients (butter, walnuts, raisins, chopped veggies, applesauce, walnuts, egg, brown sugar, cinnamon, etc.)

Slice acorn squashes in half. Remove seeds from each half.

Stuff with desired ingredients.


Make fun of step-mother who is trying to read the newspaper in the middle of all of the kitchen-chaos.

Place water in bottom of baking pan. Place squashes in pan.

Bake at 500 degrees until soft.

Decided that squashes are becoming dehydrated (this at the same time realize that we should have baked the squash upside down BEFORE stuffing), therefore cover with aluminum foil.

How were they?

Not dehydrated at all. Maybe a little tougher than if we had baked them upside down first. But the flavor was still delightful. They were delicious both with sweet ingredients (sugary) and with creamy ingredients (cheesy).
Don't try to eat the skin though--it is sort of bitter.

Clean plates all around!

And the socks of the day: warm and fuzzy socks, because it is SNOWING outside again.....Welcome to Spring everyone!
