Make-Ahead Recipes for Thanksgiving

We don't know how it would be possible to not make something ahead when you're cooking Thanksgiving dinner for family, friends, and other guests. So you've got to make a couple things ahead of time, unless everyone is cool with eating at 11 p.m. (Pro-tip: Ply them with one appetizer and beer, wine, and cocktails. They won't notice dinner's not ready yet for awhile.) But if you'd like to eat at a decent hour, let's discuss make-ahead recipes. First up is this fall squash made for stuffing. The acorn squash is the exact shape of a bowl when you cut it in half and scoop out seeds and guts. It's too perfect. Delicious as a hearty side, this vegetarian dish is packed with crunchy, savory, healthy goodies.
