I got one and I don't know what to do with it.

What's your favorite thing to do with them?

What do you suggest for a squash beginner?

Any ideas, advice, etc. welcome! :-)  Thanks in advance.

i cut them in half, de seed it, i put a tiny bit of butter in it with salt and pepper, and put in the microwave for about 10 minutes to power cook it, then in the oven for 30 minutes :) one of my favorite veggies :)

I bake it just like above, cut side down on a cookie sheet. prob at 350 deg for ~ 40 min or so till it's soft enough to scoop out & mash.  Sometimes if it's too dry & crumbly I add some chicken broth to help w/ the mash part. I would think you could do slices, like rings w/ some spray oil & seasoning in high heat oven for shorter time w/ tin foil draped over the top.

I'm not quite sure about acorn but I make mash out of butternut. I just cut down the middle and bake an hour. Then scoop out and mash with very little butter
