Signs of Fall

Fall has been in the air in Nebraska for several weeks. It's made for a wonderful August and early September. Unlike years past when this time of year is hot and humid. I noticed the trees up north at Tim's moms were starting to get a glimmer of the fall colors. Fall is my favorite season. I love the trees and their changing colors. Pumpkins, Halloween, Acorn Squash, Apple Orchards...what else reminds you of fall?

Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash, cut in half
(Microwave for 60 seconds and it will be a little easier to cut in half)
3 Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Salt and Pepper

Place the squash in a casserole dish. Use a casserole dish that is a size so they will stand up while baking. Place 1/4 cup of water in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Mix together butter, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. After 30 minutes, remove squash from the oven and brush with the butter mixutre. Cover with foil and return to the oven for 30 minutes.
