I have a good friend that brought me a 5 gal bucket of fresh yellow squash yesterday... :D Man Please...!!! I do love squash...

An easy yellow summer squash recipe.


10 small yellow squash sliced
1 medium Vidalia onion chopped
1 or 2 tablespoon bacon grease :D
salt and pepper to taste (I like a good bit of pepper)


Slice squash in medium slices. In large iron skillet melt bacon grease; when melted add the squash and onions, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat. When squash starts to become tender, mix and chop the squash a bit. Cook until squash is tender, about 20 minutes or so.

1 cup has about 8 carbs

I have my mothers cookbook which I consider my most cherished possession. If I could only take one item from the house before it was burned to the ground it would be my mothers cookbook. It not only has wonderful recipes from the ladies of the First Methodist Church of Jesup Ga. but it's full of her notes and hand written recipes. It's also full of recipes cut from the newspaper and magazines most with personal notes written in the margin.

She cooked a wonderful squash casserole which I was looking for to share with the forum. While thumbing through the book I ran across a note she had written and stuck in the casserole section. It brought tears to my eyes, a lump in my throat and I had to sit down when I read it... A couple of months before she died I ask her for the recipe of an asparagus casserole that she cooked which was delicious. She couldn't remember anything about it. The note read, "Here's the asparagus recipe you were asking for. Hopefully I will remember to give it to you. If not it's in the middle of this page by Mrs Thelma W. Thomas. I love you. Mother".

Needless to say, it's been an emotional day even for an old crusty lawyer...I really don't know how to close except...

"Thanks for the recipe Sweetheart... I love you too... Bill"
