Oh that sounds wonderful. Another month or two before our garden produces, everything went in late.

Do tell us more about this squash casserole! :groucho:

A friend gave me this squash recipe and over the years it has become throw it together instead of measuring. This is for a large batch but you can adjust it up or down. Slice up the squash (6 or 8 squash for a large batch) and cook with diced onions salt and pepper in enough water to make tender then add the lushness. Half a stick of butter, 8 oz. of sour cream, 8 oz. of cheddar cheese, one sleeve of ritz crackers crushed up. Mix it all up spread it in a casserole dish and top with parmesan and paprika and pop it in the oven.

Yum!!!! But, but, but I didn't plant any this year (last years was dismal). I can always buy it though.

Can you do it with zucchini? Of course I can always make calabacitas with the zucchini.

There's nothing like fresh from the homegrown garden!! years ago we had friends to dinner and with the meal I served fresh from the garden cauliflower. The husband said he hated cauliflower and he'd pass on it. I convinced him to just try one bite. Not only did he eat it all, but he also wanted some to take home.
Second best is opening a few ball jars of different veggies you grew and canned, a bag of frozen corn that you grew and froze and adding them to a Sunday dinner featuring some meat from the freezer (or smokehouse) that you raised and saved --- with the snow blowing and the temperature down around 10 degrees outside.

Not as good as fresh from the garden but it is still mighty tasty and very satisfying to your soul.
