Butternut Squash Soup

Here is a very simple recipe for Butternut Squash Soup.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

  1. Wash the squash with soap and water and rinse.
  2. Do not cut, score or anything. You don't even have to dry the squash. Place the whole squash into a dry pyrex baking pan and put it in the oven on a rack in the lower 1/3 part of the oven. Bake for approximately 1 hour.
  3. When you smell the sweet squash aroma, slide a knife into the squash. If it's like soft butter, it's cooked to perfection. I turn the oven off and leave the squash to slowly cool overnight.

  1. Scoop out the seeds for your chickens or for toasting as a snack for yourself. Scoop out the squash flesh into a 3-5 quart sauce pan. Cover with water or milk. Puree with a stick blender. 
  2. Add a few tablespoons of oil, butter or meat gelatin and some of the fat-only if it's organic. (I personally only add the fat if it is pork or chicken, since I do not prefer beef fat) 
  3. Add ground chipotle powder, ground white pepper, and salt to taste.
  4. Add milk or more water to fill up the pot. Mix well and heat til piping hot. Serve. The suggestions below I add per serving, so it can be different every meal, making it a fresh new dish.
  5.  This soup is great with cooked grain, such as pasta, quinoa, kasha, whatever you have, or toasted bread with butter and cheese. You can also add leftover vegetables, like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage...whatever you've got. 
  6. bon appétits!

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $6.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.84 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.

Good soap is cost effective. More
