September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day. Sunday Supper is celebrating today with a Squash fest.
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.
Do you enjoy the summer’s bounty or prefer the fall and winter varieties?,
Can’t decide? Just check out our collection of recipes I am sure you will find your favorites and venture out to try something new.
From zucchini, to butternut, to pumpkins and more let the fall season begin!
