Pork chops and Onions
Heat oil, brown pork on both sides, salt and pepper. Peel 5-6 onions, cut in slices and smother the pork. Pour in a little water, reduce the heat and simmer 20 minutes.
A good way to cook butternut or acorn squash: Cut and clean the squash, leaving skin on. Cut into serving pieces and put into small roasting pan with cover. Put a little water in to cover the bottom of the pan.
Season the squash to your taste; butter and brown sugar; cranberry sauce & apple juice instead of water, cinnamon; nutmeg & butter.
Or stuff acorn squash with a pork sausage dressing. Brown the sausage, add cinnamon, nutmeg, fill in squash and bake.
