Holidays

Holidays are a wonderful time for families getting together but it can be really busy, especially for the hostess.  I find food preparation sometimes needs to happen quickly.  Here are two recipes that helped me this season. One is a quick and easy soup and the other is a quick mustard that can garnish everything from turkey to ham and even cheese.
Easy Cranberry Mustard 
1 cup canned cranberry jelly
½ cup grey poupon
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 drops orange oil – optional
 
Heat cranberry jelly in microwave until it starts to boil. About 2 minutes.  Stir it to get it as smooth as possible.  Add brown sugar and allow to cool for a few minutes.  Stir in remaining ingredients and refrigerate. 
Nice on turkey, chicken, pork and ham and with cheese.

Easy Squash Soup
4 cups chicken broth
2 lb. box of diced butternut squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
½ cup coconut milk or other milk
1 teaspoon thyme
Salt to taste
Saute onion in olive oil until slightly browned and tender.  Add broth and squash. Boil about 10 minutes until tender. Add remaining ingredients and puree with blender stick.
