Yesterday was my first day of classes for the semester… little bittersweet. I love school, my roommates/best friends!, apartment, campus church, our Rec. center 😛 etc., etc., etc. But it was a little hard switching gears from free and easy life at home with my amazing family to actually having real responsibilities, deadlines and all that junk.
So what’s a girl to do? Celebrate/mourn by baking! Obviously.
If you’re anything like me, you struggle to eat vegetables at every meal. I’m fine with dinner and supper, but breakfast? Get Out.
I just can’t do savory in the morning :/
So to compensate…. Drum Roll…
Squash Bread. It has veggies, but tastes sweet 🙂 Now I can handle that.

*Sidenote for all you nutrition nerds out there – one of my professors informed us yesterday that in a recent published health guideline they changes the phrase ‘fruits and vegetables’ to ‘vegetables and fruits’ in an attempt to get the public to consume more veggies. It must have worked – here I am adding some to bread 😉
