We have you covered this #Thanksgiving with this delicious and healthy gluten-free alternative to traditional stuffing!
4 cups vegetable stock
2 cups quinoa
1/4 cup olive oil
1 butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and diced
2 small zucchinis, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 cup diced dried apricots
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 lime, juiced, or to taste
Bring vegetable stock to a boil in a saucepan, reduce heat to low, and stir in quinoa. Cover pan and simmer until quinoa absorbs the liquid, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir butternut squash and zucchinis in the hot oil until slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir quinoa into the vegetables and gently mix green onions, apricots, cranberries, and parsley into the stuffing. Drizzle with lime juice to taste.
Since today is World Prematurity Day-in honor of Caleb and to celebrate his fight, journey, and life, I’m sharing his birth story that was written back in 2013 on the blog.
No parent ever expects to give birth to their baby prematurely, and neither did I. But, it happened and our family gets to support and encourage other women and couples who unexpectedly have to spend months in the nicu with their tiny, fragile babies. If my story can give just one woman or couple hope, while also pushing them closer to Christ, then to God be the glory!

Happy FRIYAY!!!!!!!!! He might not have wanted to really take a picture with me this morning, but this kiddo just makes my heart want to explode!! He’s growing up so fast and his hair cut makes him look even older!! 😩
I thank God Everyday for this incredible blessing!! 💙💙
We sure are glad it’s Friday! And Emmie was super excited to catch another glimpse at the kitten she sometimes sees hiding in the bushes at Leika’s Lambs! Unfortunately the kitten didn’t take up her offer of reading the “pincess book” and her constant “meeeeow” calling 😂
Maybe next time 😉
Strawberry shake from my #eatyourselfpregnant recipe book by @life.with.the.washingtons. Thanks for the lovely review @life.with.the.washingtons, ‘I would highly recommend this book, it's packed with recipes to boost your natural fertility with all the vital nutrients you need. With healthy plans to help tackle PCOS and Endometriosis.’ Thanks!
Look what arrived today! I’ve never been overly sentimental but since falling pregnant I’ve wanted to record everything for her. I spent a LOT of time researching baby books and decided on these 2.
BABY - The First Five Years will allow me to keep track of things like first words, height and milestones. I’ll add in my IVF journey and pregnancy, and talk about her relatives and friends. I can add in photos etc and one day we can look back and see how much she’s changed. .
Letters to you is more about my feelings and thoughts in her as she grows up. It’s a few pages for every year until 18 some of the things are the same as the book above but it’s more my thoughts, dreams and hopes for her each year. .
I KNOW I’ll shed many many a 😥 as I write in these books but the way times flys know having them for her will be a gift later in life. .
Mengingat ingat lagi momen berjuang untuk mendapatkan Zea... hari jumat, dalam perjalanan pulang dr hatyai thailand ke penang malaysia... pertama kali nyoba backpaker’an... tetap menenteng cooler box berisi segala jarum suntik dan obat2 hormonal... .
Dr. Ng bilang “it’s ok, go.. have fun.. pigi sana jalan- jalan.. tak boleh stress, but don’t forget ur medicine ok”
Naik travel bus.. isi nya 7 orang dengan driver...saya dan suami, pasangan bule dr inggris dan 2 orang laki2 yg traveling bareng dr amerika...
Pasangan inggris itu sdh hampir keliling dunia, 4 tahun mereka habiskan buat menjelajah... sekitar jam 9 malam kami masuk penang malaysia dengan kondisi hujan deras... pasangan inggris nanya ke saya dimana terminal komtar penang karena mereka mau lanjut naik bus menuju hostel nya...
Saya bilang.. dalam kondisi hujan deras begini susah untuk ke komtar dan bus ada yg periode datang nya lama.. saya bilang, jika sudah ada penginapan minta saja ke driver untuk mengantar, kecuali kalo blm ada penginapan... mereka langsung sumringah begitu tau klo travel bus bisa antar ke penginapan.. bule yg cowo langsung konfirm ke driver dan bule yg perempuan lgsg peluk saya bilang makasi atas info nya... mereka berdua mendoakan semua yg terbaik untuk apa yg paling saya harapkan
It’s a simple thing... pertolongan kecil yg saya bahkan tidak mengeluarkan tenaga sama sekali... but maybe it’s a big thing bagi mereka sehingga mereka mendoakan saya demikian tulus... mungkin doa mereka merupakan salah satu rangkaian doa yg ikut berpilin ke angkasa dimana Allah mengabulkan doa terbesar saya untuk keberhasilan #ivf Kami...
