National Acorn Squash Day~

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Today's food holiday is for the thick-skinned – September 7 is National Acorn Squash Day!

Acorn squash has been a homegrown American vegetable ever since... well, America began! Native Americans were already hooked on the easy-to-grow squash and shared the love with early settlers.

Although considered a "winter squash," this veggie is from the same family as the other summer squashes, so eat it up all year long. The most common way to get your acorn squash fix is by baking it in the oven, but you can also sauté, steam or even microwave that sucker.

For a fun way to serve your squash and eat it, too, use it as a serving dish after baking. Some people swear by stuffing them with rice, meat or other veggie mixtures. You can also toast the seeds for a savory treat.

Still stumped? Check out these ten ways to eat an acorn squash. They'll make you nutty, in a good way.

 Trying to remember if I've ever had it. . . If so, it must not have made a very big impression either way.
