A spoonful of quinoa squash oatmeal form a blue bowl

My garden went crazy with butternut squash this year–like 15 of them from two plants!  I am pretty amazed but also aware of the many bags of cubed squash sitting in my freezer.  Unfortunately, I don’t have many recipes in my arsenal to use up all this squash so I decided I would be sharing some with my dogs and then on to hunt the internet. I came up with some great ideas in addition to this fabulous recipe from peanutbutterandpeppers.com.  OMG–this is really filling and gives you plenty of energy all morning. Love that!  The recipe makes enough for 4 meals (3/4 cup servings), so I store it in my fridge and eat it during the work week.  Adding a bit of almond milk and nuking on high for a minute is my kind of a quick breakfast!

So, check out the recipe and if you try it, let me know what you think!  I personally think this one is a keeper!
