It is a beautiful day in West Kentucky today. I haven't been out a lot but I did manage to get to the garden to do some harvesting. Joe planted lots this year but one that I have been looking forward to is one that no one else in my family will eat. Squash. I love it. I never cook it because no one else eats it. But Joe planted it and now it is starting to produce the most beautiful squash!
I dug out an old recipe from The Blackeyed Pea, which is a restaurant in the south. It is a squash casserole and oh my, someone pinch me cause it is G O O D! My family has no idea what they are missing. We are also having a baked corn dish along with marinated chicken breasts which Joe will grill. I might make a fresh salad since I also was able to harvest some grape tomatoes and some cucumber.
Speaking of cucumber, does anyone have any ideas on what to do with cucumber other than have it on a salad? I am going to have tons of it and I will give most away but I love the taste and have never really made anything with it. Also any comments on squash would be appreciated as well.
