Kay's school year and soccer season started last week and I have to say I'm relieved. Although the school year is much more hectic than the summer, at least it is scheduled. So far she seems happy with her teachers and, although some of her friend's are not in her classes, there are enough that she seems happy.
As you may have guessed, we are still receiving plenty of zucchini in our CSA bags. This past week we got a combination of 20 zucchini, yellow squash, pattypan squash and whatever those light green ones are called.
This isn't much of a recipe but Kay liked it so much I had to post it.
Summer Squash Saute
4 cups various summer squash, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tablespoon herbes de provence
ground pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the squash and increase the heat to high. Cook until lightly brown, approximately 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and seasonings. Cook an additional 3 minutes.
Kay: This was really good. The squash was soft so it was easy for me to eat with my braces but they weren't mushy. I liked the herbs but some pieces had too much seasoning on them.
Mom (Dana): I keep waiting for Bill and Kay to rebel against all this squash but they haven't said a word yet! Personally, I'm loving it.
