Squash Casserole

Nothing says summer like fresh squash casserole! This is my first time to experiment with a full vegetable garden. While there have been some casualties, the squash is not among them. It is vibrant and delicious. Check out these blossoms.

My next order of culinary business is to make some squash blossom quesadillas. Let’s hope there are still some available when we get back from Mexico in six days. Ginny found a ridiculously cheap deal to Cozumel. The total cost is $500 per person for five days, flight and hotel included! I don’t know how she does it. She actually did this recipe and she did a fabulous job! It is one of the best squash casseroles I have ever had.

The top is covered with toasted parmesan cheese and she added in a but of nutmeg, which really made it great. I would not have thought to do this, but she commented that nutmeg enhances dishes with a lot of cheese melted in them. I’m sold!

My garden tomatoes and peppers may perish due to some added fish/alfalfa meal I put on them, which caused a fungus to start growing and ate the stems. Better luck next year with those I hope. I have more respect for farmers now than ever. It’s not an easy job.

My favorite ways to cook squash are in a casserole, curried and sautéed with onions and garlic. I am also going to try stuffing some squash with bacon bits cheese and herbs and grilling it. Stay tuned for more simple summer squash ideas!

  22. I’m the proprietor of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to grow my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I thought that the very best way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody could suggest a trusted web-site where I can get Vape Shop Business Contact Details I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
