Acorn Squash Dinner (for 4 people)
2 Acorn Squash
2 boxes of wild rice
Raisins (to taste or you can omit)
Walnuts –chopped (or nut of your choice sliced almonds etc)
Diced pears and apples to your liking
Diced chicken (optional)
Cut squash in half long ways. Scoop all seeds out sprinkle a little cinnamon on the inside of the squash put on cookie sheet and stick in oven at 350 degree oven. Bake until tender (when you can stick a knife through the skin of the squash).
While squash is cooking, make the wild rice according to directions and start pealing and cutting your apples, pears do as many as you think you will like in the mix it gives the meal a wonderful flavor and add the raisins to your taste.
When rice is done let cool …add fruit and if you are a meat eater add your diced chicken to the mix (do not use beef in this recipe) mix all together.
Next stuff the Squash with this rice and fruit mixture and put back in oven for a few minutes to warm…. Serve when warm although it tastes great cool…which makes it a great winter or summer dish.
