Acorn Squash

  I once went to a very fancy dining establishment with my Father it was the Dupont hotel in Delaware. I ordered a grand dish and the side was Acorn Squash. I ordered it feeling very fancy but I couldn’t image how they were going to cook acorns. I really didn’t put together that an acorn squash wasn’t the same thing that a squirrel ate. I assumed they were on in the same. I just thought it was a type of acorn. I mean we were in a fancy place and who knows they douse everything in truffle oil there. I wasn’t sure that that meant either. I was baffled when my fillet arrived with this huge thing on my plate. I kept looking for the acorn. I finally asked where the acorn squash was which resulted in a huge point to this object on my plate. I have to say from then on it has been a favorite of mine. I always have ordered it when we go out. I always assumed it must be hard to prepare but I was wrong. It is so easy.

This is how it is done:

1) Preheat oven to 400°F.

2)  Take out a cookie sheet with a lip.
