Granite Countertops—Spotlight On Elegant Brown



In this blog, I wanted to focus on the color, Elegant Brown, which is quarried in Italy.

Elegant Brown Granite

Elegant Brown has a unique look that can be very linear. This particular lot has a variegated linear pattern that runs diagonal across the slabs. I have however, seen this color where the variegated linear pattern runs straight horizontal across the slabs. Elegant Brown has shades of brown, gray, rust, and a little green. If you like the color brown and are looking for an intriguing pattern for your countertops, you might want to check out the color, Elegant Brown. This color would make a neat bar top, fireplace surround, granite vanity, etc.

Stop by and check out our stock. Here is a sample picture:

Recipe: Butternut Squash Au Gratin



If you like squash, here’s a good seasonal recipe to try from Kraft Foods. It is easy to make and very good.

Butternut Squash Au Gratin

1 butternut squash
4 slices  OSCAR MAYER Bacon, chopped
1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp.  flour
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup  chicken broth
1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
 
HEAT oven to 350ºF.

CUT squash lengthwise in half; discard seeds. Cut each half crosswise into thin slices; remove peel. Place in large saucepan. Add enough water to cover squash. Bring to boil on high heat; simmer on medium-low heat 8 to 10 min. or until squash is tender.

MEANWHILE, cook bacon in skillet until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add onions to reserved drippings; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in flour and pepper; cook and stir 1 min. Gradually stir in broth; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup cheese.

DRAIN squash. Arrange half in 8- or 9-inch square baking dish; cover with half the sauce. Repeat layers; top with bacon and remaining cheese.

BAKE 25 to 30 min. or until squash mixture is heated through and cheese is melted.

 Enjoy!
