With the mornings becoming more brisk and the leaves starting to change colors, fall is right around the corner. That means that you will be seeing more squash varieties in the store, and for bargain prices too. Squash is a great option for your family as a main dish, side dish or even dessert.
Sauté green (zucchini) and yellow squash with an onion, minced garlic and olive oil for a great side with dinner.
Bake acorn squash with brown sugar, spices and butter. Scoop brown rice into the middle and top with almonds and dried cranberries for a great vegetarian main dish. Make a butternut squash dessert that will be a pleasant surprise for all family members.
