There’s nothing to make for dinner.
Ever come home and feel that way?
You open the refrigerator door, look inside and close it. Then you do it again.
There must be something.
Some of my favorite dinners start out this way. Stuffed acorn squash is one of them. The situation improves when I creatively mix things together. Of course, there needs to be a method to the madness, but it need not be maddening.
I realize many people probably do not keep acorn squash on hand. I recommend picking up two of them to have for days like these.
Have a few slices of bread? Carrots? Onion? Mushrooms?
We are halfway there.
The best part about stuffed acorn squash is it can be filled with a variety of things. You do need bread for stuffing or some rice, but you have options.
This basic recipe should get you started.
