Cushaw squash

I bought one of these at the farmer's market from an Amish man.  We love winter squash and never find it here in Arkansas and the deers like my garden.

But today, we decided we better do something with it.

This is a recipe I found:

BAKED CUSHAW

1 med. cushaw
2 eggs
2 c. sugar
1/2 lb. butter
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Dash nutmeg

Cut cushaw pieces. Scrape out seeds and boil until tender. Remove peeling, mix cushaw with all ingredients. Place in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until brown on top.

Teen Leader Austin Gutwein to host Conquer Your Fears and "Live to Give" Webcast

Thomas Nelson Author Austin Gutwein to host Conquer Your Fears and “Live to Give” Webcast
September 6 online event to focus on themes of the Hoops of Hope founder’s latest release


Seattle: On September 6 at 8 PM EDT, Austin Gutwein will be hosting a live Facebook web event to encourage participants to conquer their fears and use their talents to help others. The webcast will center on the themes Gutwein writes about in his latest release “Live to Give: Letting God Turn Your Talents into Miracles” (Thomas Nelson/August 7, 2012). At the conclusion of the webcast, the winners of a month-long social media fueled “Get and Give” contest will be announced, including the winner of a Kindle Fire and $250 donated to the winner’s charity of choice.

Based on the John 6 story of Jesus feeding the 5000, in “Live to Give” Gutwein challenges his readers that regardless of age and talent, God can use them to make a difference. Even though God could take care of everything Himself and doesn’t really need our help, He desperately WANTS us to help Him care for others. Gutwein walks young people through discovering and embracing their unique God-given strengths and abilities, then figuring out how to use those talents to help others. Sometimes doing that takes a leap of faith on our part, and often becoming fearless in the process.

At eighteen years old, Gutwein speaks with wisdom and has the experience to reinforce his message. When Austin was just nine years old, he watched a video that showed children in Africa who had lost their parents to AIDS. Gutwein realized these kids weren’t any different from him—except they were suffering. Feeling called to help, he took his love of basketball and decided to shoot free throws to raise money for orphans in Zambia. On World AIDS Day in 2004, he shot 2,057 free throws to represent the 2,057 kids who would be orphaned during his day at school. Through sponsorship from parents and friends, Gutwein raised over $3,000 that day to give hope to eight orphans in Zambia.

Over the past eight years, Gutwein’ s efforts have created Hoops of Hope, the largest free throw marathon in the world. With an estimated 40,000 people in more than 25 countries participating, Hoops of Hope has raised more than $2.5 million to build schools, medical clinics, dormitories for orphanages, and the only computer lab in Zambia.

Gutwein speaks nationwide, encouraging young people to live a life of giving. His first book, “Take Your Best Shot,” was a best-seller and shares the story of how Hoops of Hope began.
