Fall is upon us! You’ll be amazed how easy acorn squash is to cook!
All my life I’ve seen the Acorn Squash at the store and I really had no idea what to do with them. Acorn squash were 5 for 5 dollars at Fred Meyers this last week. I did these Acorn Squash in the slow cooker in a sweet style, they are delicious side for a fall meal. At this point in my 3 years of blogging, I’ve come to realize I will never run out of things to make in my slow cooker.
This recipe is just as easy as my Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes recipe. Almost hate to call this a recipe, it’s that easy. I cut the stem of the acorn squash, then cut it in half, seasoned it with spices, brown sugar and butter. I added a touch of water to the bottom of the slow cooker to keep it extra moist. For one dollar and a bit of spices, sugar and butter, this side dish is a winner. See my “recipe” for sweet acorn squash below the photos. 🙂
