The photo has nothing to do with my post, but I have wanted to post it for so long! This is Morgan with Kristin’s beautiful daughter ,Lilly, last summer. I really wanted to post each day for National Blogging Month–but it just isn’t happening. Morgan has been sick, Jeremy has been working long hours, and I have been juggling home and work.
I stumbled across a new recipe last week–I had bought some more butternut squash, which is one of Morgan’s favorites. I wanted to add protein to it and had just bought some almond butter at Sun Harvest. Morgan is still not a huge fan of meat–so I use a lot of beans, nuts, cheeses, and eggs to add protein to his meals.

2 tbs almond butter
cinnamon (to taste)

Mash squash with apple sauce and almond butter. Add cinnamon to taste.
