From our garden~
Something good from our garden!
My husband and my D-I-L,Joy, have a great little garden going! Can't say I've had a lot to do with it- except for making pictures and - now- starting to enjoy the harvest of the tasty veggies!
For the past few days we've been having yellow squash and cucumbers. We will have corn,tomatoes, bell peppers and green beans ( and I don't know what all, else,) to look forward to in the next few weeks!
Tonight I made this great Squash Casserole and thought some of you might enjoy the recipe.
Of course it's a simple one and probably a well known recipe and might be known to most of you already-but for what it's worth I'm posting it anyway! :)
This casserole turned out very good tonight and along with a roast beef and baked potatoes, a fresh salad of lettuce, tomatoes, sweet onions, garden fresh cukes and bits of cheddar cheese, we had a fine meal! Tina and her boys had dinner with us and we all agreed the squash was superb!
I forgot to make a picture of my casserole, but here are some of the squash!
