Balsamic Glazed Acorn Squash

Tangy and Sweet

Everyone says that it's pumpkin season but it's more like squash season.  Pumpkin is not the only squash out there this season, so let's get into the acorn squash.  Roasting is one of my favorite things to do in the fall, it helps bring out the sweetness.  Roasting this acorn squash is no different.
