It’s a delicious recipe that just screams harvest bounty! Enjoy!
1 medium acorn squash
1 tablespoon butter (room temperature)
1 teaspoon brown sugar or 2 teaspoons maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 and follow these steps:
1. cut top off squash and scoop out seeds
2. poke the sides with a fork
3. mix sugar and butter
4. add cranberries and walnuts until even with top edge
5. top with the butter and sugar mixture
6. place in a shallow pan
7. bake for 30 to 40 minutes
This recipe is for one squash, but make as many as you like. They’re great as a side with a lean meat like a turkey or chicken breast. They’re also terrific on their own.
Hi everyone! This is Kim Thompson, BEST’s Communications Manager.
I recently took a little field trip to the beautiful Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) in downtown Tacoma, Washington.
I got some pics and made a little video. It was so much fun! Special thanks needs to go to BEST volunteer, Erin Thompson, who shot and edited the photos and the video. Thank you, Erin!
So why did I make this trip? Well, I am THRILLED to share that the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) is going to be participating in a community art installation at the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM).
Work displayed in Tacoma Art Museum’s TAM Local: Community Art Space for the Superhero show from October 16, 2019 to December 26, 2019.
We will have an opening reception that is FREE for the general public and will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 in the TAM Community Art Space. The reception will be held from 5 pm to 7:30 pm that evening. Light refreshments will be served.
Parking fees will apply at the museum or may apply for some nearby street parking.

I can’t wait to see you at the museum to celebrate art, superheroes and the amazing artists and community supporters of the Washington State brain injury community.
While art is indeed about individualism, the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST) also believes that empowerment is about individualism, too.
Each person in the brain injury community has their own unique form of personal empowerment. That’s why at BEST, we help people with tools, strategies and resources to help them tap into their own kind of empowerment that works best for them.
We like to think of this process as an art form.
That’s why we are celebrating The Art of Empowerment for Giving Tuesday 2019 (#givingtuesday), the worldwide day of giving back to we care about.
Join us on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 for a spirited day of art, creativity, sharing, caring, giving and conversation.
Our donors and supporters help transform the lives of those affected by brain injury and empower them to be their BEST, each and every day.
Don’t want to wait? Become an empowerment artist supporter today.
