The power of Costco! Never ceases to surprise me with new products.

How cute are they?

This is a little twist to the Thyme Quinoa stuffed Acorn Squash recipe I made in October. These are perfect for when you’re hosting for the holidays and need something small to keep your guests steady until dinner time.

I’ve made two easy ways to serve the baby squash to  play up their shape and presentation.
