Cast of Characters:
2 Medium Butternut Squash- peeled and cut in chuncks
1 medium onion- Diced

In a large heavy duty pot, I use my 
pour some olive oil and throw in the diced onions. Stick it in the oven at 350* 
Bake for 20 mins. until onion soften. 
Toss in squash and apples and veggie stock
Bake for another 40 mins, until everything is soft.

Strawberry Pie

This is a delicious dessert, that I first tried at a friends house in Pennsylvania! So thanks to Lisa who shared this with me.

1 9in unbaked pie shell

3/4 C Sugar

2 T cornstarch

1 C Water

1 (3oz) back strawberry gelatin

4 C sliced strawberries

Fresh mint (optional)

Bake pie shell @ 350 for about 30 minutes.  Then cool.

In a saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat, stir in gelatin until dissolved. Refrigerate for 15-20 mins or until slightly cooled.

Arrange strawberries in bottom of cooled pie shell, pour semi-cooled gelatin over top and refrigerate until set. .

Now you can eat just like that or add some homemade whip cream to the top! :)

Delish!!! Fresh mint for garnish! :)
