Jerri Green with a great idea for the vegetarians at your thanksgiving dinner.

Sometimes I get so caught up in all the great fresh food that comes in the summer, that I forget how comforting fall food can be. From cinnamon sweet potatoes to juicy pears to creamy mac and cheese, fall has some pretty fantastic dishes to enjoy.

Since I am using up the final bits of my CSA, I thought I was start my renewed love affair of all things fall with some of the eightball squash that I had left. If you can’t find these, try acorn squash instead. They are pretty prevalent these days.

Stuff them with your own stuffing and cranberries and you have a really special vegetarian main dish that would be perfect for Thanksgiving! Just be sure not to use any animal broth or bits in your mix. Of course, this marvelous main dish is also fine on any other fall day.
