Last night we had a bit of a pre-Thanksgiving meal: stuffed acorn squash, courtesy of Alton Brown (we skipped the pork though).
My god, were the tops hard to cut off. I think it took me 20 minutes to saw them off and scoop out the seeds.
Here's the stuffing, pre-mixed.
Out of the oven, after an hour of baking at 400 degrees.
We bought a few sides at Whole Foods to accompany it, but we did not need them at all. This thing is a meal in itself.
