Stuffed Baked Acorn Squash

My mom and I have a weekly tradition of going to the downtown farmers' market together nearly every Saturday morning in the summer and fall. We stroll along the bustling street, coffees in hand, savoring local breads and cheeses. And while bright summer produce is enough to get any foodie's heart aflutter, what really gets me excited is when the temperatures begin to drop, the leaves begin to change, and fall produce starts making an appearance!

Maple Roasted Acorn Squash

It's that time of the year again when the whole family piles into the car and we head out to the pumpkin patch for hay rides, obligatory fall photos and over-priced apple cider. It's a racket, but I tell myself I'm making memories and try not to think about the fact that I'm paying $8 to have my kid's face painted. When we were heading out I let each kid pick a pumpkin and I picked up a few acorn squash for dinner. We were standing at the check out counter spending my last $10 when my 5 1/2 year old spotted a pumpkin carving kit. (Apparently even farm stands know about product placement.)
