The most simple recipe ever and Gene and I both loved it. That's saying a lot for Gene because he barely tolerates acorn squash...so when he says "Yeah, that'll work" I know I've hit on a great recipe!
Perfect kitschy Christmas gift from a few years ago from my cousin, James: high falutin' sporks. They make GREAT squash scoopers and eaters. Thanks James!
