It's a taste of fall!

Acorn Squash in your slow cooker

This is a simple recipe that not only makes your house smell fantastic as you cook it, but will wonderfully satisfy your craving for the taste of fall. Sweet and savory, healthier than pie, and pairs perfectly with baked chicken. We love to make this the evening we carve pumpkins.

Acorn squash is a rather odd vegetable, but now you have no excuse not to try it!

Thanks everyone, hope you enjoy it. It is an acquired taste I think, unless you love squash! :)
