We will have soup for breakfast, and soup for lunch. And for dinner we will have broth! - my 10-yr-old son

Beefy Squash Bake

What do you call something that you just threw together?  Goulash?  Bake?  Dinner?

Tonight I used the other half of the squashes that went into the Crockpot Chicken Curry.  I totally improvised and it actually worked.  GAPS is taking me so far out of my comfort zone!!!

In a 13x9 pan add the following, and stir to distribute.

1/2 butternut squash, small cubes
1/2 acorn squash, small cubes
1 onion, diced small
1 calabaza squash, small cubes

Take 1 pound of ground beef and break into small, small bits.  Top with lots of salt (a few teaspoons?) and gently mix together.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Take off the foil and stir around, breaking up the ground beef as needed.  Bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed/cooked off and the squash is soft.

Everyone ate this without complaint, although there was a lot of picking out of the meat to begin with.  This is a Stage 3 recipe, "stews and casseroles".
