Going Nutty over Acorn Squash

Okay, guys, if you've never tried acorn squash, take my word for it. These thangs are REALLY good. On second thought, don't take my word for it. Why not try one for yourself! Not only are they shaped like a nut, but they are packed with nutty flavor, and so easy to prepare.

Acorn squash ripen from a dark green color to orange, even after harvest. I waited until this one was orange all over for a sweeter flavor. This squash was roasted, uncovered, in a convection oven for about 40 minutes, and sprinkled with a little nutmeg and cinnamon. Then, covered with aluminum foil, it baked another 10 minutes. After cooling for about 5 minutes or so, the skins easily peeled away revealing the golden yellow flesh inside. Yummilicious. Nutty. Sweet. Sooooo good!
