What’s For Dinner? Summer Squash

Yummy!

We harvested our first summer squash today from the garden, I’m not sure how many more squash will appear from this beauty. My huge and beautiful summer squash plant, has been damaged, my guess is by a boy…they are sure it wasn’t, but you know, summer squash is in the greenhouse this year, so not so many other creatures could damage our plants…

Tonight I made a lovely dish, I put chopped up garlic scapes in some bacon grease and sauteed them while #2 sliced the squash, then I added the summer squash and sauteed until cooked adding salt and pepper. When they were fully cooked I added chopped basil and turned off the stove.

I also made a lovely salad with leaf lettuce, cilantro, basil and oregano. I added some apple (procured in the discount basket at the local market), goat cheese (I usually like to make my own, my brothers goats aren’t producing enough for me to barter with them right now), balsamic vinegar and olive oil, soooo delicious!

The finished product, so delicious!

I sauteed up a ham steak just to warm it slightly to serve on the side.

All the greens and veggies and the ham was from our farm, I love that!

Enjoy what you can produce on your land, everyone can grow

  1. I don’t know why but my summer squash normally give up after a few months, I always have better success with growing zucchinis

    1. Zucchini is the traditional summer squash in most of California, perhaps because it tolerates the aridity better than summer squash. I never asked. I prefer it anyway, so had not reason to question it.
