I put an oven stuffer roaster chicken from Perdue in the crock pot at 9am. I seasoned it with thyme, black pepper, seasoned salt, basil and oregano.
To make the acorn squash: I sliced it in half, scooped out the seeds and pierced the insides with a knife. I put a tablespoon of butter in each half as well as an unpacked tbls of brown sugar and a dash of black pepper. I placed into a glass pie dish and put some water into the dish. I covered with plastic wrap and cooked for 15 mins.
I made mashed potatoes and gravy, as well as some corn. I try to keep it simple and hope you try this veggie out. You can also bake it in the same manner and cover with tinfoil for a larger group. Enjoy!
