It’s simple, delicious, home-cooked goodness at its absolute best.

Especially this time of year when squash are beginning to make themselves well known in many gardens. In other words, prolific!

We actually fiddled around so much this spring that we failed to get our garden planted. We had the best of intentions by plowing the garden area, planning all of the vegetables we’d be planting, and everything just short of buying and planting the plants.

Once we started looking at our summer calendar, we remembered how it had worked the last three years.

We work ourselves to death to get the garden planted and ready and then, we end up going on vacation right as it begins to come in. We come home to the garden we’ve tended like a baby being overtaken by weeds.

I have to be honest. At this point, some of the fun of my garden has worn thin.

Then, as the hot, humid air just seems hang thick during the later days of July and August, my Georgia garden lost every bit of the charm it could muster

So, this year, once we looked our calendar, we decided we’d be the best customers our local farmer’s market has ever seen. We’re taking this year off from the summer vegetable garden. We planted wildflowers for the honeybees instead.

Do I regret it?

Yes and no.

As I visit friends and see their beautiful gardens beginning to produce gorgeous vegetables, my heart gives a bit of a lurch just thinking of all that I’m missing.

But then, as I drive home from the farmer’s market with tons of delicious produce I just bought from my local farmers, I’m pretty glad of our decision.

    1. Susan, this recipe freezes well. After this dish has cooled completely, place in airtight freezer containers and freeze for up to 6 months.

  1. I’ve been eating this squash recipe for over 65 years. It is my go to recipe when I have too much squash. The only thing I add is a bit of sugar.

    1. My grandmother always made this recipe when I was growing up, Phyllis. I’ve never tried adding sugar.

  2. May I substitute frozen squash? If so, would recipe change? How would it? Thank you.
