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!

Pretty, ehh?

Summer Squash Casserole

Love your garden pictures. My favorite way for yellow squash is to slice and dip in buttermilk then a mixture of flour and cornmeal. I love egg plant like that also. Oh yummy!

Joy and Dot,

Thanks to you both!

Yes- nothing like fresh veggies!

Dot-I also like squash cooked that way- battered and fried!

Happy Sunday to you both!

I figured a good southern woman like you would know how to fry squash!

:) For sure, Dot! And that's the best way to eat fresh squash!
