Butternut Squash Soup


For lunch…


1 4-5 lb. Butternut squash cut into chunks

1 yellow onion julienne sliced

3 celery stalks thinly sliced

1/2 bell pepper chopped

Fresh Chives, several sprigs cut with kitchen shears

Few sprigs of Italian Oregano

Original blend Mrs. Dash, Black pepper, No Salt to taste

2 Chicken bouillon cubes dissolved into 2 cups water

2 cups water

Blend all together, cook down, and I thought about purée, but decided against it, just used a hand held vegetable masher.  Oh my is it ever good.  Just right!  Made it up as I went along.
And for dessert.. Blueberry Lemon Cream Cheese pound cake..


1 BC Lemon Cake Mix

3 eggs, room temp

8 oz. cream cheese

1/2 c. Canola oil

Using mixer blend till smooth, about 2 minutes.

2 c. Fresh Blueberries rolled around in flour to evenly distribute fruit

Bake @ 350 degrees for 1 hour.  I turn 180 degree turn every 15 minutes of cooking.

This recipe was in the local newspaper from my childhood/early adult life and I grabbed it, used ever since.  I bake it for Cake Auctions for Youth Fundraisers.  Until last year $28.00 was the top price raised,  another record $55.00!  The hometown I earlier referred to is Hattiesburg, MS and in the past couple years  I learned that a friend there does the same thing with this very cake.  She must’ve gotten the same paper..JS
Make it!  Enjoy!  Raise funds for your Youth Group! See folks saved for eternity!
