Wordless Wednesday: BIG Gourds

Brian went on Deacon visitation and came back with HUGE Squash!! HUGE... I have never seen such BIG Squash before!!! The one Anna is holding is as long as my forearm.... from my elbow to my fingertips.... just ONE would feed an army:)

Thanks to our sweet friends who generously shared their produce with us!!!

Now, I love squash cooked in the microwave with butter (oopps... I mean LITE, milk-free margarine), pepper and a little salt!! And Grandma taught me to make fried squash. Anyone got anymore kid-friendly, milk-free (or easily substituted) squash recipes:)

Yes, I have look here:http://jennysblog2007.blogspot.com/2009/01/pasta-and-zucchini.html
By the way, I am a little bit jealous that you have got yellow ones. I cannot get them here in my area. That's why I tried last year to let them grow on my balcony. But this year I only have tomatoes.

Ah, I just saw that I wrote down the recipe for one portion so you have to change the amount for yourself.

Pardon me, I don't have any recipes to share. But those squashes look very big indeed. They must be pretty yummy too. :)

Behind on some posts due to travels with my parents, but we like to cut squash/zucchini and add onion, garlic, salt/pepper and olive oil. Place in two layers of foil (or maybe one thick one?) and put on the grill, or down by the emberes of a fire. YUM!

Enjoy and hopefully it works out for ya'll! We love fried squash and these here! My hubby just uses this and zuchni squash (think I spelled that wrong) potatoes and onion puts them on a kabob or in foil and makes grilled veggies on the grill! Enjoy!
