Honey French Toast

A few slices of bread (any level of freshness will work, french toast was originally designed to use stale bread)
A splash of your milk of choice(about 2-3 tablespoons)
A few tablespoons of honey
A pinch of salt
A pinch cinnamon
A few drops of vanilla extract
Oil of choice for frying (I use grass fed butter or coconut oil, but any oil will do)
1/2 Mashed banana (optional)
First, whisk the egg, milk, honey, salt, Cinnamon, vanilla, and banana in a shallow bowl. Heat your pan, and put some oil in to warm. While the pan is heating, dip your bread slices in the batter, and then fry them in the pan until they are golden brown. Enjoy them hot, with some fruit, drizzled honey, syrup, or on their own.
Cheesy Roasted Acorn Squash

Oil for roasting (I use olive or coconut, but most would work just fine)
Cheese- Many different types will work, especially the kind in your box!
Optional Seasonings- Thyme, garlic, rosemary and chilli
Preheat your oven to 375. Cut open the acorn squash with a sharp knife lengthwise, and scrape the seeds out with a spoon. These are really delicious roasted with salt in a single layer on a sheet pan until crunchy.
Drizzle the squash with oil, sprinkle with salt , pepper, and your seasoning of choice and roast open side down for about 35 minutes, or until you can easily pierce the flesh with a fork. Take it out, and after it has cooled for a few minutes, scoop out the flesh with a spoon or a fork, and mix in the cheese to allow it to melt in. Enjoy while warm.
