Three Ways to Eat Squash

So it seems like everyone around here is growing squash in his/her personal garden right now. Trent brought some home for me, but I don't know how to cook squash in a way that Trent might actually eat it. Come to think of it, I don't really know how to cook squash at all! However, in the past week, I have tasted three new delicious ways to enjoy squash.

I have previously tasted steamed squash (I think that's what it is called) and squash casserole (which is mighty tasty, but once again, do not know how to cook it myself.) Well, here are three more ways to cook squash:

1. Deep fry tiny squash cubes with other veggies such as ocra and onions
2. Deep fry thin slices of squash into crispy squash chips
3. Chop and mix squash with jalepenos and onions, and then batter in flour and eggs and fry

Ok, ok, I have to admit...even though these recipes are delighful, they all void the nutritional value of great veggies. Turns out, the only way Trent's family will eat most vegetables is if they are deep fried and will possibly clog an artery. Yummie!

i love fried squash!! generally i cut squash, zucchini, onions and any other veggies i want into thin strips and saute them with olive oil and garlic salt...slightly more healthy, but definitely NOT as yummy!!

There are lots of yummy ways to cook squash. My Mom used to slice it really thin and layer it with potatoes and onions and cook it in the microwave. You can simply slice it and boil it. Once it is tender, drain off the water, add a little butter and salt and pepper---oh my--very tasty!
