Be Anxious for Nothing! Philippians 4:6-7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.


Butternut Squash Bread

Picture is after I made a recipe from Bostongirlbakes.com.  We happened to have a ton of my husband’s favorite squash, not,  pop up this year.  Squash is a natural dewormer as well as many other things but he just doesn’t like Butternut Squash soup.  The only recipe I knew at the time so I thought I’d try a few new ones to see if it got approval.  The bread was one of the prize winners!

Ingredients consist of 

  • All purpose flour – You can also try using 50% whole wheat flour to make it a bit more nutritious. 
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Ginger  
  • Cinnamon
  • Vegetable oil
  • Sugar – I prefer to use organic cane sugar, but regular granulated sugar works, or coconut sugar (but that will make the bread darker).
  • Light brown sugar
  • Eggs
  • Butternut squash puree – You can make your own using the instructions below or use canned. 
  • Orange juice – Just a bit of orange juice adds a perfect amount of citrus flavor to compliment the fall spices. You can also use water if you don’t have orange juice.
