Heart healthy

I've been thinking ahead to the annual cupcake party in Febuary. I love that tradition but I'd like to see more healthy snacks. A little carving and these fit right in.

Snowy afternoon

Snowy afternoon is a great time to make some Gelatin monotype Christmas cards. And good practice for the class I will be teaching beginning of December.

Butternut soup

I call this yummy soup
Faux Cheeseburger Soup
Cut a butternut squash in half. Scoop out the seeds and place on a baking sheet face down. Bake @ 375 until tender ( about 45 min depending on squash size )
Meanwhile sauté onions, celery, garlic and ground beef or turkey.
Spice with salt, pepper, paprika, a little oregano and curry powder.
Add peeled and well mashed squash.
Add milk and thicken with flour and water paste.
I have gone gluten free and use rice flour - works fine.
Also today I ran out of milk and used water. Not as creamy but still tasty
Simmer and taste before serving to make sure it's perfectly seasoned.
Good and hearty

Work then play

Last week I went in to see how the new playhouses were coming along. Those shop kids sure put in a lot of work.
