I'm still working with acorn squash and this coming weekend I have some beautiful butternut squash to work with which may involve making my coconut curry butternut squash soup  (if I do I'll share!) which is so delicious.  We wanted a simple dinner that highlighted...

I am still concocting new smoothies--I can't help it!  I love them and am always looking for ways to make them substantial since I don't like to be hungry too soon after I drink them. Adding a 1/2 cup of rolled oats is a wonderful...
