Super Yummy Baked Acorn Squash

Standard

I love acorn squash. I have someĀ memoriesĀ of my mum and dad making this around the holidays when I was a kid, and now that I”m all growed up I get to make it for myself! I had never thought of putting pepper in the squash before, but it turns out that it’s freaking awesome! Try it.
