This is baking in my oven as we speak. This recipe is my version of PaleOMG's Italian Meatloaf with subs based on that I already had on hand.

Ingredients
For the meatloaf:
- 1lb grass fed ground beef
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1 jar roasted red peppers, chopped (about 1.5 actual roasted peppers. Ain't nobody got time fo' dat.)
- ¼ cup tomato sauce (generic, W30 compliant marinara sauce from a jar)
- 1 egg, whisked
- ¾ cup almond flour
- 1 Tbsp italian herb blend
- salt and pepper, to taste
- olive oil, for sauteing

For the sauce:
- ¾ cup tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp italian herb blend
- salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (started at 350 degrees because I had other things in the oven, will turn up when other thing is done).

Place a medium skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Then add onion to the pan. Cook until onions have become soft and translucent.

Once they are done cooking, add them to a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients for your meatloaf and use your hands to mix it all together.

Press ingredients into a medium sized pyrex pan (like 9" x 13"?) and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Once your meatloaf is almost done cooking, add your sauce ingredients to a saucepan to heat up until slightly bubbly.

Let meatloaf cool slightly then add sauce on top. (I may try browning a bit with sauce on top.)

(I snipped this from a Facebook group I'm on, and haven't had the chance to try it yet.)

Put the following in a small sauce pan:
1/4 cup turmeric powder (preferably organic)
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5-7 minutes. It will thicken and become like a paste. Add 4 tbsp of coconut oil and mix well.

Put it in a glass jar to refrigerate.

When you want some golden milk or turmeric tea, take 1-2 heaping tsp and add to a mug of hot water, or hot milk of choice (I use cashew milk). I do usually add 1-2 tsp of raw local honey, it's a fairly bitter brew without it.

This came from one of my MIL's ancient cookbooks. One time when I was sick she made me a pot while watching my daughter and it really hit the spot.

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp butter or other oil
2c finely chopped yellow or white onions
4 tsp curry powder
2 med butternut squash (about 3lb)
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
3c chicken or vegetable stock, plus additional (up to 4 cups)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
  1. Cook onions in butter with curry powder in a large pot on medium-low heat until tender, about 25 minutes.

  2. While onions are cooking, slice each butternut squash in half. Scoop out the seeds, and then peel outside. Roughly chop so pieces are about the size of the tip of your thumb.

  3. Once onions have softened, add remaining ingredients except for the apple juice or additional stock and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover, stirring occasionally. Cook until squash and apples are fork tender, about 45 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and puree with a stick blender. Add apple juice or additional stock until soup is at desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Our garden blessed us with many, MANY butternut and acorn squash this year. Most of the vines surprised us because they cropped up behind the pig pen which is out of sight unless you specifically walk behind the pig pen.

I'm going to try a version of Paula Deen's Butternut Squash Casserole. I have more than enough squash for two batches, and I've made a curried butternut squash soup before which was very tasty so I don't doubt the seasonings she has here.

Paula's Version )

Notes: I'll probably omit the raisins and coconut, but will otherwise try the recipe as is this time.
