Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

All this for $22.00

I went to the Farmers Market this week and I scored some great veggies. I bought red peppers, jalapeno peppers, grape tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, spaghetti squash and butternut squash.
Here’s a first for me this week.  I froze broccoli.  I blanched the broccoli and then put it in an ice bath, drained  it and frozen them on a cookie sheet.  I’ll let you know how that tastes this week.I made this squash the other night and I wanted to share it with you all.
It was delicious! You know fall is in the air when all these squash recipes start popping up.
