:: Day 147 - Summary ::

8am: Breakfast at McD's with church peeps. Since I've been "off" the sausage mc muffin for soooo long, I decided to continue to stay off it. Had an egg mcmuffin instead + a fruit/yogurt parfait. I was close to bailing out on breakfast for health reasons but decided that fellowship with my dear friends was more important than that.

12pm: Peanut butter on a whole wheat toast, and peanut butter persimmon sandwiches. Delish!

2pm: a small piece of toast with havarti cheese

Main meal @ home
Persimmon salad
Creamy White Bean Garlic Soup with Rosemary
Gratin of winter veges (Peter Barley Recipe) - this will definitely be a repeat in the Chen household!! So delicious!

there's no squash in it but i dont see why you cant use squash instead of carrots and in place of some potatoes! 3 layers in a casserole or cast iron skillet:

layer 1: potatoes, thinly sliced with carrots thinly sliced (tossed in 1 tb olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt)
layer 2: 1/2 cabbage, sliced (tossed in 1 tb olive oil, 1 lemon juice, 1/2 tsp salt)
layer 3: 2 onions (sauteed with some salt and evoo until soft first)
I am thinking you can subs the carrots for the squash that you have?
layer 4: 1-1.5 cups of broth
layer 5: 2 cups of fresh whole wheat breadcrumbs mixed with 1 cup of parm/gruyere, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbs evoo

Bake at 400F for 40 minutes. :)
