(slight modification of muth family farm's recipe)

1 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
2 T earth balance vegan butter
1 T maple syrup or brown sugar
2 tsp minced fresh sage

rosemary roasted potatoes
(recipe by barefoot contessa)

1 ½ pounds small red or white-skinned potatoes (or a mix)
2 T olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 T minced garlic (3 cloves)
2 T minced fresh rosemary leaves

1 :: preheat oven to 400°F. 

2 :: place acorn squash cut side down in a glass casserole dish. 

3 :: cut potatoes in quarters and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary until well coated. spread on baking sheet in a single layer and bake with squash about one hour, or until potatoes are brown and crisped. flip twice with a spatula during cooking to ensure even browning.

4 :: while the squash and potatoes are cooking, prepare sweet sage butter by heating butter, maple syrup, sage and salt on low about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally

5 :: coat squash with sweet sage butter and enjoy flavorful fall deliciousness!=)

  3. u garden is soooo beautiful. we're leaving town tomorrow to go house-hunting for our future farming and sustainable living goals! Trying to move to the country, amish country to be precise! Wish us luck!

  4. Mmmm, acorn squash is one of my favorites. I make it just like you!

  5. This looks really good, Kelli. And your garden continues to amaze.

  6. I love acorn squash, but I make it the boring way with only butter and salt. This looks amazing though! I will have too try it!

    hi gardengirl! (can i call you gg?=) i usually make acorn and butternut squash with butter and brown sugar. the sage adds a really nice flavor. i'm looking for savory ways to prepare it too. i'm more of a savory person, but i love this sweet buttery squash.

    lauren, there are some members that add their own art and decorations. it looks so nice. i'll have to show photos of the fall decor!

  9. I love sage, the smell reminds me of winter holidays.
    Next year I have a plan for a veggie garden, yours looks amazing!

  10. oh yum! Hmm...thinking of doing this for t-giving (and before *wink*). Love your go pic -- so cute! And is that shed at your community garden? It's darling.
