The incredible, edible.... acorn squash?

My roommate approached me last night with an interesting query: "How can I make a 5-course meal using acorn squash as a main ingredient in each course?"

As a preface to this question, my roommate is a first-year architecture grad student at the University of Minnesota. One of his first projects was to study the acorn squash and do various things with it - draw it, build a model using it, and now to cook with it.

I think it's an interesting challenge and really does mirror architecture in a lot of ways. That being said, he has to prepare 5 courses, each using the acorn squash, and present them to his class along with some sort of documentation of the cooking/tasting process (pictures, notes, etc.).

I know I can rely on my fellow Hounds for help with this one! Any brilliant ideas about the acorn squash? Anything terribly complicated would likely be thrown out the window since he has to prepare 5 courses. The finally project is due Monday.

Have at is! :)
