Do you ever get stuck in a food rut?  You know what I mean.  You cook chicken the same way over and over.  Or you eat the same thing for dinner for a week.  It happens to all of us.  Don’t feel bad.

I am here to save you by posting THREE different ways to cook a single, simple ingredient: acorn squash.

I know, I know…acorn squash is a winter squash.  Yet, here we are in June, and I am planning to present three different ways to serve this vegetable…out of season.  I’m sorry.  Will you forgive me?
