2 each  acorn squash
1 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
1 pinch  ground cinnamon
1 tsp  packed dark brown sugar
1 pinch  ground nutmeg
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Prick the squash skin with a fork and place in the microwave on high for about 3 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let cool for a few minutes. Cut the squashes in half and place the cut sides down in a baking dish for about 40 minutes. Check for doneness by piercing with a fork; there should be little resistance.
  3. Scoop the squash flesh from the skin into a bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork, or use a food mill.
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir well. Add the cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg, to taste.
