My coffee hasn't quite brewed yet this a.m., so everything is a bit foggy for moi. It should be ready soon.
Yesterday was busy (this is beginning to sound like a broken record), but I did manage to cast on sock #2 for Damon. I only was able to do the first 5 rows of the cuff, but that's something. It was terribly hot, but we had a pretty strong thunderstorm in the evening which dropped the temps a little bit.
Let's talk food! Which I love! The recipe I am sharing here is a throw back to the 50's I'm sure. It's from my Aunt Doris and is a casserole I don't make all that often, but we do really like it. I made it the other week when we were having some unusually cooler temps. It goes well with chicken, pork, fish, whatever.
Summer Squash Casserole
(I'm sure you could sub zucchini if you are over-run with it...or do a mixture)
Cook together (I just melt some butter and cook it in that):
- 6 C yellow squash
- 2 onions chopped
Once cooked, mix in the following:
- 1 C shredded carrots
- 1 C sour cream
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
Melt one stick of butter and mix with a small bag of Pepperidge Farm dressing mix. Put one-half the dressing in the bottom of your casserole dish and pour all the squash mixture on top. Sprinkle the last half of the stuffing over it all.
Bake at 350 for about 1/2 hour - you want it to get warmed through and be a little brown on top.
Note: this makes a lot, but it does freeze well. You could also easily cut the recipe in half.
And a bonus recipe for you! This is Peach and Blueberry Greek Yogurt Cake and it is so yummy! I made this last Friday:
We took it to Colin's on Saturday when we were over there for lunch, but all of us were too full to have any. We cut the cake and left half with Colin and Mailing and brought the other half home. It is tasty (hey - blueberries and peaches - it has to be tasty!!) and not overly sweet. Unfortunately, I didn't think to put it in the frig and in a matter of a couple of days it was covered with green fuzz. Yuck! I will be making this again though.
Now it is time to (finally) pour a cup of coffee and get to my Thursday reports. Have a wonderful day everyone!
