Meatless Monday -- Butternut Squash Stew

Welcome to a new week, a short week here considering I only have to be at work three days *extreme happy dance* Another Monday has come that we've tried another meatless dish. I'd never had butternut squash before and one squash (which cost a whopping 75 cents) not only made a large crockpot full of dinner and tomorrow's lunch, it also made 8 baby food jars for Miss Riley. I'm trying to make as much homemade baby food for her as possible and why not kill two birds with one stone.

The baby food recipes will be for another day. Today it's about the stew.

For the recipe you'll need

1 medium onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, sliced
1 1/2 cups butternut squash, cubed
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 can green beans
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

I put everything in the crockpot on low for 10 hours. Nothing better on a cold November day in PA than coming home to some warm stew in the crockpot! 

I hope you enjoy! 

Here's our little ham enjoying Light Up Night this past weekend.
