January Show & Tell

It may have been a smaller turn-out than usual, what with all the winter storm warnings and all, but those of us that did make it had a great time. The meeting was relaxed and unhurried, and it felt like we all just got a chance to be friends and chat about our hobby. That was probably my favourite meeting in three years. See you next month!

Mrs. Clark's Squash Bake

Many of you LOVED the Squash Bake from the dinner at the Missionary Church at Christmas. We were lucky enough to get a copy of the recipe, and at least three of us made it for our own Christmas dinners. To tell you the truth, it was also the breakfast, lunch, dinner AND birthday cake on my birthday. :-)

Brenda Clark's Squash Bake

1 small squash (I use 4 generous cups)
1/2cup mayo (not miracle whip)
½ cup finely chopped onion (I put mine in food processor)
1 egg beaten
1 tsp sugar
salt & pepper to taste

¼ crushed soda crackers (food processor)
2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. melted butter

Bake uncovered, 30-35 minutes

I have made the recipe as above and used buttercup squash.  For the church I used butternut squash.  I am sure you could use the squash of your choice.
When I make it for the church I multiply by at least 4 and only use 1 cup onion.  I feel the amount in the recipe would be very overpowering.  Also when you make large batches it takes a good hour to cook.

Update- Dec12/12
Squash for Quilt Guild was hubbard.  I used 20 cups of squash and multiplied everything else accordingly (x5) except for onion, still only used 1 cup.  Baked for 1.5 hours at 350.

December Show & Tell

I'm sorry I've fallen behind on keeping the blog updated! No excuses, just a whole lot of procrastination. Again, my apologies. I hope I can make it up to you by also posting the recipe for Brenda Clark's amazingly delicious Squash Bake from the December Dinner after I update the photos.
