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!
