One of my challenges is to make meals my boyfriend will enjoy, he’s got a sweet tooth and was brought up with southern cooking. He liked this one:
Oven to 375, half an acorn squash (remove seeds) and bake until tender (my small squash took 40 min)
While baking brown 1/2 lb of ground beef and onion. Transfer this to bowl and add two strips of cooked chopped bacon, dried cherries, and eventually squash insides. Remove squash from oven and scoop insides, leaving 1/4 inch of shell. Put insides back in shell, add some butter and bake another 15.
