A late autumn month, and Thanksgiving Day (here in the USA).

Butternut squash is one the items on hand... trying a different recipe. And, I must decide the items to bring to Melissa's table to Thanksgiving.

Mexican Beef and Bean Casserole
http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/mexican-beef-and-bean-casserole/4f58abae-6de0-4529-884d-6aa12f88ee2a

1 pound ground beef
2 cans (15 to 16 ounces each) pinto beans
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup mild chunky-style salsa
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)

Heat the oven to 375°.
Cook the beef in the skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
Rinse and drain the beans in a strainer. Mix the beef, beans, tomato sauce, salsa and chili powder in the ungreased baking pan.
Cover with lid or aluminum foil and bake 40 to 45 minutes, stirring once or twice, until hot and bubbly. Carefully remove the lid, and sprinkle cheese over the top. Continue baking uncovered about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

*This was really simple and very good!!

Ann, that definitely sounds delicious. I have to pick up all the ingredients, except for tomato sauce, chili powder, and Monterey Jack cheese.

GRANDMA'S BAKED ACORN SQUASH

1 acorn squash, cut and seeded *
water
1 Tablespoon butter (1-1/2 teaspoons each side)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
salt, optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a pan with 1/4-1/2 inch water.

Cut each half slightly around the edges (to prevent the edges from curling). Place each half into the baking pan.

Rub each inside of half with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter. Salt, if desired. Add 1 Tablespoon of crumbled brown sugar to each half.

Bake 1-1/4 hours.** The tops should be golden, and the sides should be very soft. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.

* If the acorn squash is slightly misshapened, cut off a small part of the bottom of each half so it stands without tipping.

** NOTE: 1-1/4 hours is for a medium sized squash. Check between 1 and 1-1/2 hours depending on size.

Adding cinnamon would be another treat! Have you ever stuffed an acorn squash with ground beef or ground pork/sausage? If you have, how do you make it?

I made these yesterday after reading about them on the TOH website, couldn't find the beef so used chicken, was really good!!

Ground Beef and Rice a Roni Meatballs


3/4 pound ground beef
1/3 cup onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup fresh white mushrooms, diced into small pieces
1- 6.8 ounce box beef rice a roni
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
2 cups warm water
salt and pepper, as desired

cornstarch
water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine beef, onion, garlic, mushrooms, rice a roni (set aside seasoning packet), egg, parsley, salt and pepper. Shape into meatballs, approximately 10-12.
In a large skillet, brown the meatballs over medium high heat. Remove from heat and transfer to a 9x13 glass baking dish. Stir seasoning packet into 2 cups of warm water. Pour water into baking dish with the meatballs. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
Pour the liquid from the baking dish into a saucepan. (You may need to add more beef broth or water to make a bigger batch of gravy.) Heat over medium high heat. Stir together cornstarch and warm water to make a thick slurry. When it comes to a boil, stir in the cornstarch and water mixture. Cook until it thickens to desired consistency.
Serve meatballs with garlic mashed potatoes and gravy!
