Have a GREAT Turkey Day!

In getting ready to go to a friend's house for Thanksgiving Dinner, I thought I would pass this tip on to those who are also cooking something for the meal.

When making acorn squash, the most common way to make it is to cut it in half, drop in some butter and/or brown sugar then shove it in the over until tender. Then diners are served 1/2 a squash. Mmmm....Mmmmm Good! However, sometimes you need to stretch your food or maybe you don't have the space to cook 1/2 a squash per person. What to do?

I have found that slicing the squash up and laying it out on a pan or cookie sheet, then covering with butter and brown sugar and bake as usual, does the trick. It tastes just as good, if not better as the flavors can penetrate more, and you can serve a number of people with just a couple of squash. And you don't end up wasting good food because someone can't eat an entire 1/2.
