This week Sunday Supper explores Simple Dinner Ideas for Two.
For a lot of families, a “family dinner” doesn’t mean cooking for four or more people! It can be difficult to find recipes that cater proportionally to cooking for just two people. For this Sunday Supper, we’d like to bring Simple Dinner Ideas for Two back to the table! Cooking for family is important no matter the number of people sitting down to eat.
I like cooking for my guy and me. He really is a good sport because he never knows what’s for dinner.
Families of food bloggers can relate. I do keep his dislikes out of the mix. Dishes with beans, pineapple, or coconut get a pass for him.
I’m glad he learned to love winter squash.
You can fill acorn squash with just about anything.

It is also so good for you!
Acorn squash contains vitamin A, niacin, folate, thiamine and vitamin B-6, but it is an especially good source of vitamin C. A 1/2-cup serving of cooked, cubed acorn squash provides approximately 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for healthy adults following a 2,000-calorie diet.
A large acorn squash when filled is a meal in itself. Make a little extra filling on the side if needed.

    I was surprised when I realized my picky hubby will actually eat squash. Mushrooms are another story! But I think he’d enjoy this fabulous stuffed squash. I’ll eat his portobellos–such a sacrifice 😉
