Gardens & Friends


.
You can't buy this in a store! One thing that you can always depend on during the summer - gardens and friends. Once a garden starts really producing, you always end up with an abundance of vegetables. And, you can only eat, can or freeze so much before you run out of room. Just looking at these veggies made me think of BLT's, vinegar & cucumbers on ice, and fried squash. Can you think of a better supper on a hot summer evening?
.
In case you don't like fried squash, here's a quick casserole to try.
.
Crook-neck Squash Casserole
.
2 cups yellow squash, sliced thin
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
.
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Melt butter and add flour gradually. Add milk, squash, eggs, salt & pepper. Mix well. Pour into buttered casserole dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 325 degrees.

Hi Marge, The veggies in the garden look fabulous. My father-in-law always has a nice garden --but not this year. He said that even his tomatoes aren't doing well. He lives in Hendersonville (north of Nashville). Of course, he's almost 97--so that may have something to do with it. ha

You are right. There's nothing better than veggies from your own garden.

Hope you have had a great week. We just got home from vacation.
Hugs,
Betsy
