Are you making this? 
2 Acorn Squash; (medium)
1 pound Ground Beef
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Apples; pared & chopped
1/4 cup Raisins
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup; (optional)
1 cup Cashews; chopped
2 tablespoons Butter; melted

Original recipe makes 4



Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut each of the squash in half and remove the seeds and fibers.

Place the squash, cut sides down, in an ungreased baking pan. Then add water to the depth of 1/4-inch and bake, uncovered, until the squash is tender, about 30 to 35 minutes.

While the squash is baking, cook and stir the meat in a large skillet until it is brown. Drain off the excess fat. Be sure meat is well crumbled.

Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the salt as well as the cinnamon, the coarsely chopped apples, raisins, maple syrup, & nuts.

When the squash is cooked, turn them so that the cut side is up and remove them to a platter. Drain off any remaining liquid in the pan and dry.

Scoop out the pulp from the acorn squash, making a shell that is 1/4-inch thick all the way around.

Season the shells with salt to taste. Mash the pulp and mix in the meat mixture.

Return to the shells, piling them full and drizzling with the melted butter. Bake uncovered until the apple is tender, about 14 minutes. Serve hot.

I left out the maple syrup and spiced the meat a little instead
