Hard times

We share how we care for ourselves in hard times, what others can do to best support us, and resources for helping those close to us when they are going through something tough.

Eating lately

Sarah found a breakfast her kids will actually eat: bagels!

Abby used up her summer squash with a three cheese squash casserole:

Cook in bit 1-2 t olive oil and 1-2 T dry sherry (kind of just stir/sauté until it’s just barely done):
3-4 lbs. yellow squash, sliced and then cut in fourths
Drain well; gently press between paper towels to remove some liquid;

Melt in skillet:
2 T. butter

Add and sauté 5-6 minutes:
1 large sweet onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced (add only for last minute of sautéing time)

Remove from heat and stir in squash and:

1 C. soft breadcrumbs (any good white bread will work; do in food processer or blender)
¾ C. grated Parmesan cheese (Not Kraft in box; buy grated Parmesan in dairy or cheese section)
1 C. (4 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 C.  (4 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
¼ – ½  C. chopped fresh chives
½ C. minced fresh Italian parsley
1 (8-oz) container sour cream
1 t. salt
1 t. fresh pepper
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Spoon into lightly greased large baking dish

Stir together:
