Acorn Squash Bread - Pinterest Challenge

It's that time of year again - the Pinterest Challenge. It's a non official challenge to actually do something off one of your pins hosted by a few fab bloggers - SherryKatieSarah & Carmel. This season I'm doing another food item. To check out my last one see here.

The pin is here

Please check back with the original site and creator here.

Onward to my bread. We got 2 acorn squash in our last CSA (more on that soon). I wondered if they're small for their size or typical. One squash made just over a cup after roasting and de-seeding. I needed 1 cup for the recipe so I ate the rest w/salt & pepper for a little snack. Yum (but after it's blended it reminds me of baby food) whatevs.

I won't go into the entire recipe here. Please check back with the original blogger for that. If you've ever made banana bread you'll be a pro at this.

I was home alone so I had to split this thing by myself. I got dear husband to cut the larger spaghetti and butternut squash recently since they was too much for me. Luckily these were small so it only took a few mins.

The liquids all mixed, then...
the liquids with the dry ingredients!

I went all out with the nuts & dried fruit. All out. I added tons of dried cranberries and broken bits of pecans. The more the merrier!

By the magic of the internet... we have bread! I added a ton of turbinado sugar on top for crunchy goodness.

The final product! YUMMM with a little halloween fun in there too.
