Squash!

My neighbors have an abundance of yellow squash, and gave me about 15-20 pounds of the largest squash I've ever seen!


I'm going to try a casserole today, which I'll share the recipe if it turns out well.


Anyone else have a recipe they'd like to share with me?

For big squash, I like to cut them in half the long
way, stuff with a spiced rice filling, and bake until
tender.

For normal sized ones, I slice them the long way,
marinate in soy sauce and lemon juice, and grill them.

I will look for some recipes to see if you can grate them
and use like zucchini in cakes, cookies, and such. If you
don't hear from me, it means I didn't find anything.

I'm back. I did find something. Here, zucchinis and
yellow squash are grated together and sauted for an
easy vegetable dish.

I also found suggestions that have you grate yellow squash,
zucchini, or both together, and use them in brownies,
breads, cookies and cakes. Here are some ideas:

And if you want more recipes, just check back and we will get

I've been sidetracked all week, and haven't even got the casserole made yet!

That would be good if you like cajun rice. I was
thinking more along the lines of rice with chicken
broth, basil, thyme and oregano.

You can grate and freeze the squash and use it later
too.

Zucchini chocolate cake and zucchini brownies are so good.
And yellow squash is just like zucchini but with a milder
flavor. You can't go wrong.

If you have the freezer space, you can bread and flash freeze some of the squash for frying later.
