The New Wednesday Recipe Series

We are going to be releasing a few recipes each month on Wednesdays, interspersed with clients stories.

 

For the first one, thanks to Chef Devon, she made:

 

Easy Crockpot Butternut Squash & Quinoa Soup

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 1 can (15.25 ounces) kidney beans
  • 1 can (15 ounces) corn
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) petite diced tomatoes*
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 packet (1.12 ounces) fajita seasoning mix
  • 4 cups of vegetable or chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Peel, seed, and chop the butternut squash into small bite-sized pieces (or buy pre-chopped butternut squash which is what I did to save time).
  2. Rinse and drain the kidney beans and corn.
  3. Lightly grease your slow cooker with nonstick spray (I use a 6-quart crockpot). Add in the quinoa, chopped squash, kidney beans, corn, undrained tomatoes, garlic, salt & pepper to taste, and fajita seasoning packet. (OR try a chili seasoning packet if you enjoy those flavors better).
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and give everything a good stir.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until the quinoa is cooked through and the squash is very tender.
  6. At this point you can remove some of the squash and mash it with a potato masher and then put it back in the soup. This is totally optional!  I ended up just mashing them a little bit with my spoon before I dove in which was perfect.
  7. Pour a bowl and enjoy!  You can add any toppings you like or just eat it as is which is so tasty!!!

Memory Lane: The Original PIT

In 2008, my parents let me open a gym their basement.

It was known as the PIT.

And unless you’ve heard stories or watch videos from the Youtube channel from 2008/09, then you’ve never seen it.

Well, here it is:  https://youtu.be/UHxNv0jq5TQ

Yup, we have all come a long way.  Thanks for your hand in building up Newell Strength!

He’s a Character

Two Friday’s ago, we had our first parent-teacher conference for Braxton.

Back in the day when I was a PE teacher, no one ever scheduled a conference with me, although I wish they had.

Anyhow, both teachers were telling us how much of a character he was.

Suzy and I both were giggling out loud as they relayed stories to us.

We wholeheartedly agreed that he is a character, in fact, we encourage it.

In life, so many people want to fit in, not stand out, for fear of being different.

Some people hear the term, ‘he’s a character’ and they assume it to be a bad thing.

My life has been made up of a collection of characters surrounding me. My brothers and close friends always said I seem to have a whack-pack (other characters).

When someone says, ‘You’re a character’, it’s a great thing, it means you stepped into your authentic you.

Being a character and being weird is a nature state of being. Being a character is where life gets fun.

So, I hope that as long as he is in school, we keep hearing that he is a character (and respectful and kind, which they told us too).
