      Oh yum!! This is definitely a make again for DH to try. DD1 (4 years old), DD2 (5 months old) and I liked it a lot. I chose to use acorn squash as it was the variety I had on hand, sea salt, instead of using a hybrid,, I used an organic lemon, I had trouble grating the zest off so I didn't use as much as called for. I substituted allspice in a lesser quantity for the nutmeg as we do not consume intoxicants, plus the rest of the ingredients. Served with Cumin!! Rice and Tzatziki Mexicano. I will make this again the same way. Made for Veggie Swap #46 ~ May 2012 ~
