Serving Acorns Today

The first of the acorn squash are in the house!
I think this is my favorite squash.

For lunch today here at my desk, I'm serving this.
Cut the squash in half and slice off a tiny bit of the end.
That is so it will sit up straight.
Scoop out the seeds.
Add a spoon of margarine and season to taste.
Use press and seal wrap (love that stuff) to seal.
Microwave on high 4 minutes.
And then maybe a little more.
Unwrap and fork around in the meat so the margarine will soak in.
ummm good!


PS....on the way out the door, I fed the seeds to my flock.


  1. Oh thank you for this recipe! I never thought of microwaving squash! Now I may buy more of it, I can't grow much here, not much sun. If I ever move I will make sure to have an area with lot's of sun to plant a garden! I can only grow cool growing vegetables, and that too is a challenge!

  2. This looks delicious. It's too early for us here, but I love the local squash--I've never tried the acorn, but I do love the butternut. I'm going to try this--I never knew that you could cook squash in the micorwave--Thanks!

  3. Oh, just look how pretty they are in the first picture! And the second one makes me want to make a stamp in that shape (pretty flower). Enjoy your lunch!

  4. Sounds and looks yummy!!! Now I'm hungry!!!lol

  5. I so love Acorn squash...a soothing comfort food that is good for you and your body :O)! Thank you for the recipe. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  6. Wow! I didn't know you could microwave acorns like that. I like mine with butter and a little brown sugar. I'll definately be trying this.


  7. Thanks for the recipe! I am going to try this Monday night for dinner:D Love squash!!!!
