Not Healthy

Tonight we had Squash Casserole and since we don't have school or work tomorrow I made Blondies. This is not a good thing. I mean Blondies are a good thing but they aren't a good thing when you are trying to eat healthier. (In our house we don't diet, we eat healthier.) All in all I think that was shot to hell this weekend anyway. Cheese (in the amounts we used it) is not healthy. Blondies and cupcakes. . . definitely not healthy. Oh well, Tuesday is another day.

Squash Casserole
from Sparky
Print Recipe

4 cups diced yellow squash
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 sleeve buttery crackers (Ritz)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp salt
ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Steam squash and onion until tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Place squash in a bowl. In a medium bowl, crush crackers and stir in cheese. Add salt and pepper and stir. Stir half of the crack mixture into the squash. In small bowl, mix together milk and two eggs. Pour into squash mixture. Stir well. Pour into casserole dish. Top with remaining crumb mixture and bake and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is browned.

++This was pretty good. Not as good as the spoon bread but a good change. The skins did not soften all the way on the older squash so next time I will peel the old ones.

++Remember to reserve the water and use it for your houseplants.

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour, sifted
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/3 cup butter or margarine (melted)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat the oven to 350. Add baking powder, baking soda and salt to the already sifted flour. Then sift dry ingredients again. Add chopped nuts and mix well. Set aside. Add brown sugar to melted butter and mix well. Then add egg and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, until mixed well. Stir in white chocolate and peanut butter chips. Spread out dough in a 9-inch pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Use a toothpick or fork to test if it is cooked in the center.

++You could use any type of chips and nuts.

The blondies are delicious! When PE will take seconds of a dessert I know it must be good.
