A Good Laugh

Posted Sep 21 2010 5:23am

Good morning! :mrgreen:

Did anyone else catch the season premiere of How I Met Your Mother last night? It’s one of my favorite shows on TV right now and it always makes me laugh. Maybe it’s because I can relate to the characters so well? Mal and I sort of act like Lilly and Marshall, and Ted, Robin, and Barney remind me a lot of our friends.

I definitely had a good laugh last night. Mal and I even tried to perfect our High 6! :lol:


Other TV shows that crack me up are Ellen (I’m obsessed!), Modern Family, Community, Big Bang Theory, and Jersey Shore– those people are so ridiculous, they’re funny! I love a good laugh! :mrgreen:

Ok, so, I’m not the best baker, but sometimes I get it right. My Chocolate Chip Squash Loaf was definitely a winner! :mrgreen:


Remember the huge squash that my realtor gave me a couple of weeks ago? Well, it’s been sitting in my kitchen since then, so I finally decided to do something with it. I cooked it up and turned it into a sweat, yummy loaf of bread. Aren’t veggies enjoyed best in baked goods!? ;-)


  • 1 cup mashed yellow squash
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease loaf pan.
  • Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl and blend well.
  • Pour batter into loaf pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until top is firm and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow loaf to cool for 10 minutes before cutting.


On the side, I had some French vanilla yogurt with chia seeds .


My first piece of Chocolate Chip Squash Loaf was so delicious, I’m debating eating a second piece. It would be so good with the rest of my iced coffee! ;-)


What TV show(s) do you watch when you want a good laugh?
