It’s also the time of year for illness. Did you know you can take action so you don’t get sick? OnGuard Protective Blend boosts the immune system and protects the body against environmental threats. Not only does it help the body, but it’s a great non-toxic cleaner too. Try it in:
Laundry Detergent
Foaming Hand Soap
Multi-purpose Cleaner
Hand Sanitizing Spray
Roll On Essential Oil
Softgels (I use it when exposed to the pukes and other sickness)
I wish I had time to explain how amazing this product is, and share stories. Stop in sometime and learn more or click here.

Butternut and Apple Harvest Soup

65 minutes | 4 Servings
I love these flavorings mingled together. Serve it with grilled cheese and a salad.
2 tablespoons butter*
2 large leeks (white and pale green parts only), chopped
1 large onion, chopped (or sub 1 T. dried minced onion*)
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
2 cups cubed butternut squash
1 cup diced carrots
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
 1 quart chicken stock (or sub 1. c boiling water and 1 T. chicken bouillon base*)
1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
1/2 cup light cream
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg*
salt and pepper to taste*
2 tablespoons chopped chives (or 1 T. dried chopped chives*)
*Ingredient available at The Country Cupboard
  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in leeks and onions, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, squash, carrots, apple, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. Carefully puree the soup in batches in a blender, or use a stick blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Once the soup has been pureed, return it to the pot and stir in wine and cream. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; simmer gently for 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with chopped chives.
