September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day.  Sunday Supper is celebrating today with a Squash fest.

Need a new and different idea for a spaghetti squash?  Try these Spaghetti Squash Fritters.  Crispy on the outside, tender and delicious on the inside.As the season is beginning to change from Summer to Fall, it just seems natural to make squash.  I was one of those who tried spaghetti squash years ago at a dinner party and didn’t like it at all.  Never touched the stuff until about two years ago.  Since then, I have made several recipes using this unique veggie.

And to think I almost forgot to make this dish in time for Sunday Supper.  Luckily, I remembered just in time to run to the local market, grab a squash and fry away.

  15. I like that hint of citrus from the dried orange. I bet it is one of those background flavors that boosts the others. Goat cheese in there is quite nice too.
