    oberon's Note:

    One night I was cooking for a friend who had me over for dinner the night before. He served two of my favorite veggies -- broccoli and sweet potatoes. As it turns out, they were all I had in my house as well. Feeling like I couldn't serve the same to him the very next night, I hit the local veggie stand, not really knowing what I wanted. When I walked in, I saw the acorn squash piled high. Then I saw a bin of various dried fruits. The rest was improvisation. Feel free to play with the kinds of fruits, nuts and seasonings. The next time I make this I'll add some onions to give it a chutney flavor. Note that all these measurements are approximations. Adjust for your own tastes.
