It’s time to start talkin’ turkey!! And allll other food that surrounds the holiday feasts!

I love to cook and eat, well let me rephrase that, I love to cook and eat good food. Not that allll food I make turns out “good”. And since I have been on a healthy life style change I am constantly looking for yummy food that is good for you soooo this year I am going to try out all new (I know that is kinda scary) recipes for the holidays and I will be posting them as I make them and let you know how they turn out.

So how do we feel about acorn squash? Acorn Squash was one of those “new” foods that I was introduced to this year. I have found a few recipes but I tried this one out and it was so easy and quite tasty. I do love Stonewall Kitchen products, I’m sure they have a bit more sugar in them then is necessary but I wanted to give this a try and boy am I glad I did! This will be divine with turkey!

4. Bake for 1 hour or until fork tender.

5. Scoop the pulp into a bowl, mash with the Cranberry Horseradish Sauce and butter. Add salt and pepper to taste.

6. Put the filling back into the squash shells and serve.
