Stuffed Acorn Squash

Here's a great way to use an acorn squash if you've never know what to do with it.  This is one of those fall meals I looked forward to having my mom make. Comfort food for me.  I whipped this up for lunch today in about 30  minutes.  It's simply delicious.

Just a side note....In the past I have used good ole Jimmy Dean sausage, but I used Jenny-O sweet Italian turkey sausage this time and I didn't notice too much of a difference.  Change is good :) 
Cut squash in half, discard seeds, put in a microwave-safe dish with a little bit of water, cover, microwave.
Scoop out the 'meat' of the squash.
Mix the squash, browned sausage/beef, apples, raisins, salt and nutmeg.
Stuff each half of the acorn squash. Top with butter and brown sugar. Cover and microwave.
Making this today was a good excuse to test out my new camera.  I'm still figuring things out since it's a lot more complicated than my point & shoot, but I think I'll get the hang of it ;)
