      Looks good, Jennifer! Oscar Meyer bacon was on sale this week( 2.49 per package), so BLT's are on the menu! Your ham dinner ( love acorn squash) looked fantastic, as well.

          Great pictures!
           
          I tried making acorn squash once.  I sliced it in rings and baked it.  And baked it and baked it and baked it.
           
          It never got soft so that was the one and only time I ever tried.
           
          So how long did yours take?

            Thanks mar!  I have read that it can be done in a microwave in 10 mins, possibly a bit longer.  I preferred roasting it in a pan in my roaster.  I started checking after 20 mins and I do poke because I haven't completely figured the timing out and each squash is different as far as size and shape.  I just kept the largest half for myself and poked it maybe twice to feel that it had reached the desired consistency, so everything still looked good for everyone else.  You can feel when it's right if you poke it and I think it's better to cook it longer rather than not enough.  That was my 2nd time making it.  It was yummy!

              I also posted pics of pan fried tilapia with creamy dill sauce and fried pork chops.  I finally got permission.  I feel like I've been a good kiddo and have just gained new priviliges!  :p

                I always do acorn squash sliced in half, then cut-side down in a pan of water. 350F for something like an hour, or until it's tender. Or, fill it with sausage and do it cut-side up, loosely covered with foil. Same temperature, same time.
                 
                Tonight apparently we aren't having dinner. It's been awfully special at my house today with attitude.

                  Thanks, girls!  I'll have to try it again.
                   
                  Attitude for dinner, huh?  Yikes!
                   
                  We received a distressed call mid day from our friend, Steven.  His computer was working.  Sharon is the computer pro so we went over there, then to dinner at Dinah's and back to Steven's because it wasn't like he wanted.
                   
                  I had fried chicken, yellow rice ruined with flecks of red pepper and green onions and creamed spinach.

                    Last night was Ina Garten's Perfect Roast Chicen (roasted with sliced fennel, onions, carrots and thyme), mashed potatoes and gravy. Tonight is chicken fried steak with cream gravy, baked macaroni and cheese, and fresh green beans cooked with bacon and onions. I'm going to SAMs Club today for the national "Taste the Holidays" freebies. I don't know why I look forward to this event so much!

                      I'm making acorn squash for dinner tonight.  Cut in half, scoop out the seeds, salt and pepper and put in a Pyrex baking dish, cut side down, add some chicken stock, a little butter, foil on top and bake until tender.  Then I take the foil off, turn it over and add butter and brown sugar into the cavaties and bake on high heat for about another 20 mins.  With this we will have roast pork tenderloin and Brussels sprouts.

                        I like to cook acorn squash on the grill.  Cut side down over the coals until it caramelizes and then cavity up over indirect heat with a big ol' chunk of salted butter thrown in.  No need to add sugar!

                          Lisa, thanks for the tips.  I'm going to try it again.
                           
                          I think pork loin is a perfect match.
                           
                          Brad, did you score the interior of the squash or are those grill marks?

                            Much the same but we like butter and cinnamon and the cut side up. No foil.

                              lleechef, that sounds about perfect!  And ScreamingChicken, anything is good grilled, so I will have to try that!

                                Tonight I did some Asian-marinated roast boneless pork loin chops, with baby carrots in a butter-sugar-lemon juice glaze on the side. The goal is to clean out the refrigerator so I have room for Thanksgiving dinner in there.

                                  After three days of not being synchronized on our meals due to deer hunting, shopping and getting ready for Thanksgiving and the big decorating throwdown the three days after Thanksgiving:
                                   
                                  Got a nice fire in the fireplace .....
                                   
                                  There's a really nice thick T Bone on the grill right now - potatoes in the oven - oysters on ice - and a small salad waiting.  And a bottle of Cabernet.

                                    We had corn dogs.  Too busy to cook.

                                      Mar, I scored the inside of the squash.  I don't think it made much of a difference, especially since the flesh gets scooped out and mashed together.

                                          Every way I have read is good....I just scoop it out, add butter, salt pepper and brown sugar........bake at 350 for about 1-1/2 hours.

                                            Tonight I chopped up the vegetables and meat from the pot roast, threw it all in a pan to simmer with the gravy, and called it beef stew. Three more containers OUT of my refrigerator!

                                                  Tonight I did a simple fake crab casserole with peas, onions and a ton of cheese. The refrigerator is pretty much empty, and I'm keeping it that way if it kills me!

                                                    The other half is gone deer hunting, so it's dinner for one the next few nights. I'm making a pot of split pea soup with a ham hock. He's not a fan, but I like it!

                                                      This will be my dinner tonight.
                                                      It's what I served yesterday for our big brunch after Thanksgiving:
