    Lime Under the Arms

    I have been using natural deodorant for years. I always use the kind of products that contain none of the bad stuff like alum etc. I recently came across this tip about using a lime as deodorant. I tried it for a week and it worked great!

    Best Natural Deodorant Implementation:

    Slice a Lime
    Apply to the underarm
    Label it clearly
    Store in the fridge
    It can be used for about a week

    Love and Celebration

    My husband gave me the most beautiful card. It included the following quote…

    “Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”

    Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

    I LOVE Barefoot Contessa and I love a good cup of Butternet Soup on a cool fall day! This is a keeper!

    Recipe

    Ingredients: 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons good olive oil 4 cups chopped yellow onions (3 large) 2 tablespoons mild curry powder 5 pounds butternut squash (2 large) 1 1/2 pounds sweet apples, such as McIntosh (4 apples) 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 cups water 2 cups good apple cider or juice

    Directions: Warm the butter, olive oil, onions, and curry powder in a large stockpot uncovered over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until the onions are tender. Stir occasionally, scraping the bottom of the pot. Peel the squash, cut in half, and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into chunks. Peel, quarter, and core the apples. Cut into chunks.
    Add the squash, apples, salt, pepper, and 2 cups of water to the pot. Bring to
    a boil, cover, and cook over low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, until the squash and
    apples are very soft. Process the soup through a food mill fitted with a large
    blade, or puree it coarsely in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel
    blade. Pour the soup back into the pot. Add the apple cider or juice and enough
    water to make the soup the consistency you like; it should be slightly sweet and
    quite thick.

    Check the salt and pepper and serve hot. Here is the link!
