Acorn Squash Stuffed with Sausage and Tomatoes — 5 Comments

  1. I do, Katie, but few of them come to mind right now, except something called Pumpkin Yum Yum. But you are so right: They often come from church cookbooks. Not especially healthy food, but so satisfying.
    OK, Bear Claws, Puppy Chow – stuff you can still buy in Wisconsin groceries stores.
    I love squash with sausage, by the way.

  2. You’re right! We’ve lost something wonderful. Even though cherry pie filling and whipped cream seems to be missing the pastry, I suddenly want to have Clouds at Sunrise, simply for the name!
    I’ve always loved the name “Angels on Horseback” for graham crackers with roasted marshmallows and chocolate. And “Cheese Dreams” for melted cheese on toast. But I think my two favourites are “Blue Soup” and “My Favourite Meat” that were in my husband’s family repertoire. “Blue Soup” is white bean and ham hock soup; “My Favourite Meat” is a chop that is braised in sherry and red currant jelly.
    Your sausage stuffed acorn squash sounds wonderful! Lucky you having a glut of acorn squash! Although, my allegiance to acorn squash has suddenly shifted after trying last night’s dumpling squash. Oh my!!

  3. Mimi, Pumpkin Yum Yum – sounds good! I love reading the church cook books – and, yes, some of the recipes are pretty, um, unhealthy…. LOL
    manningroad, Hedgehog? I’ll have to Google that ;-))
    Zoomie, we can get Floating Island at the local restaurants, here….
    Elizabeth, I thought Angels on Horseback was an oyster dish?!? Blue Soup…. My mother always made something she just called ‘Hot Dish’… love the simple names. The family knows what it is, though, right? The only squash we get is what I grow…. and I only have so much space.
