Sometimes I just get the urge to make and eat a lot of vegetables. I have to say that I'm pretty happy about these urges right about now. Every other day, I seem to find myself eating three- to four-course meals, then inhaling a pile of desserts. Just to make sure they're good, ya know. I'm doing some self-appointed quality control testing.
While I love hanging out with the family and trying to figure out how food much I can actually fit into my stomach, it's time to give myself a reality check. Christmas is over and I really need to reign things in. It's probably a wise idea to kickstart this healthy eating with stuffed squash. Only good things can come from roasting acorn squash, and then stuffing it with brown rice, cranberries, and pecans.
In all honesty, this is my first time making a dish using acorn squash and I'm pretty proud of how this turned out. The recipe is so easy that it would be quite difficult for me to fail at making this. Since I'm pretty much still nursing a food hangover (4 days later, oof), simplicity is the name of my game.
