First of all, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the acorn squash halves in a pan filled with a little water. Bake them uncovered for at least one hour; poke them to make sure they're cooked through.


Set them aside to cool. Once they're cool, remove the squash from the peel and coarsely chop it.


Meanwhile, heat the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and cook over fairly low heat until it's practically translucent. Add the garlic and stir it in for a few seconds. Then add the squash. Beat it down with your wooden spoon to mix with the onion and garlic, and let it cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.


Place the cream cheese in a large bowl and warm it up if necessary. Place a ricer over the bowl with the cream cheese, and rice the squash mixture using the disc with fairly small holes.


When you're done, whisk the cream cheese and squash together. Add the salt and curry powder. Taste and check for seasoning.


Serve the dip warm.

The air is cooler when you leave the house in the morning and your eyes don't bulge out of your head anymore when you see people wearing jeans. It's a fantastic time of year, when the leaves start to turn and ..
