Happy Acorn Squash Day!

Blogger of the Day: Antonia at Foody Bites

Summer gently folds into fall, and out roll the schoolbooks, sweaters, sweatshirts and an autumnal array of squashes. Winter squash comes in many shapes, sizes, colors and characters...the skin is usually inedible but the seeds are yumfully toastable! Acorn squash is especially easy to make and goes well with all sorts of grains like superhealthy quinoa. Antonia uses black quinoa but you can use any color, or really any grain you like. She keeps things elegantly simple to focus on bright and brilliant flavors so dish it up and enjoy!  :)

Have you cooked with squashes? Which is your favorite? Do you like cool September weather? What's your favorite comfy sweatshirt?  :)

  1. We grow lots of pumpkins and squashes, butternut and acorn are probably my faves, although we don't have them every year. this year we have lots of kabocha. I too have stuffed acorn squash with quinoa- they go really well. I'm a summer person really, but I like September if it's sunny (like this year). Squashes and pumpkins help make Autumn better! A bowl of hot pumpkin soup inside me keeps me warm like a favourite sweatshirt...
