Let the Squash Games Begin

Uh oh. 

Squash is beginning to ripen.


It's time to get creative…


and failing that, 
find friends who want fresh squash!

The recipe I used above was a variation of a recipe I found on Recipe.com.

I precooked the yellow zucchini, split in half,  for 2 minutes in the microwave and scraped out the seeds. I sautéed onion and traditional zucchini in Italian herb infused olive oil. Then I added sweet basil, ground pepper, milk, beaten egg and a blend of freshly grated parmesan and cheddar cheese. I baked it for about 40 minutes at 350, but the yellow zucchini 'dish' was still a bit firm. Next time I'd probably bake it closer to an hour. I am thinking bread crumbs on top, perhaps mixed with additional cheese, might be a nice finishing touch.

The recipe was tasty, but didn't receive raves from the family. I think they are already a bit weary of squash at dinner!

  1. Our garden has been sparse this year. Strange reactions by plants to weather.

    If I were close I would enjoy you sharing with me.

    1. It would be fun to be closer to one another. But, failing that, maybe sometime I'll have to direct Mr. Dreamy to drive your way with the motorhome.
