~ Pretty Yellow Shadows you can eat ~

Hi, ya'll....
I hope your day is going as good as mine.
What a blessed and wonderful summer it is.

One of our good friends shared this beautiful
yellow squash with us ...
what a pretty golden yellow...
but more important, what a generous share from a friend.
Of course, the way we like it BEST is sliced, dipped in cornmeal mixture and
FRIED...
oh BABY...
but since we aren't eating much FRIED ANYthing,
Mr. Sweet is going to grill some for us tonight.. then, I'll slice the rest
and freeze.
No, we won't eat it fried...but ROASTED  is good, too..
....sliced, sprinkled with OLIVE OIL, a little light dose of SEA SALT and fresh ground PEPPER,
in the oven for about 20 minutes and you are GOOD TO GO.
The only thing better than getting fresh SQUASH 
is having a sweet FRIEND that is so loving and generous.
"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
 BE the living expression of GOD'S kindness...
kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile."
Mother Teresa
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY....
XOXO

One of my favorite foods. Of course, I like it best fried too. Nothing better than fresh produce. Eat enough for me.

TexWisGirl said...

Loretta said...

Kris said...

Yes, he is a hero!!! I loved our yellow squash from the garden this year. But we are about done with this heat. The garden is getting all fried up!!

That yellow squash looks so artistic in the white basket with the red in the background. Your plan sounds like a good one — grilled sounds delicious.

Sarah said...

BJ, enjoy your grilled squash. We've been the lucky recipient of a friend's garden bounty this summer. ;-)

Hi BJ: I'm with you and actually any kind of summer squash is so good no matter how you fix it. I love that you have Oscar Pistorius's picture on your blog. Just watched him anchor the last race. What a trooper and a very fast runner. There are so many wonderful stories about some of the athletes. Do you remember Jim McKay saying, "Up Close and Personal"? Those were good old days..Happy Weekend..Judy

Kathleen Grace said...

Sliced,drizzled with honey and sprinkled with your favorite cheese (feta is great!)and baked til it's golden, delicious!

I like mine sliced and gently sauted in butter.
Mother Teresa was an extreemly wise and Godly woman.
So...but yeah, when my squash is ready, give me a call, K?

I love squash steamed and served with a little butter. Yumm!!

Ralph said...

Lovely squash - and a wonderful gift from a true friend. I go with grilling, just coating with a bit of oil before. Salt and pepper, and the fresh squash is now set for dinner. Yellow like the sun and with a side dish of shadows. Nice!

farmlady said...

Oh, I do love yellow squash and that quote of Mother Teresa's. She was such a gift to the world... such an example for us all.
Lovely post.Happy Summer.

Oh- That is how I like my squash, too. Floured and fried! Yum....However, I have been just dry sauteing it in a non-stick pan lately and we love it that way now. It browns up and I just salt and pepper it- xo Diana

Leslie said...

Great friends and good squash ... who could ask for more!! Is that Paul Ryan on your sidebar? Love him!

Lighthousegal said...

Your shadow shots are great, with the bright yellow color of the squash and the shadows too.
One of my favorite vegetables, so many ways to prepare it. I have a rice cooker/steamer that I use quite often to steam carrots, squash, zucchini, and onions together with a little red pepper flakes sprinkled on top... so good and healthy too. My daughter likes it boiled with a little butter added.

Looks great! I've had green but no yellow this summer. It's so nice that your friend shared-enjoy:@)

Feral Turtle said...

Yummy! I love squash. I am growing butternut this year as it is a keeper! I am looking forward to sinking my fork in. I will have to try it roasted! Cheers.

Beverly said...

A sharing friend is indeed a blessing. I love summer squash, too. My favorite is grilled, but I also like it sauteed with onions and chicken broth.

Great photos, BJ.♥

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Mmmmmm, luscious. Can't beat 'em. Fresh, from the garden and ever so tasty. Your photos are beautiful BJ.

Ps...I can't wait for Fall either. Maybe we'll finally get some good saturating rains soon.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

How sweet to have some yellow squash from a friend! I love it steamed with an onion chopped into it and a little butter. YUM!! Enjoy and happy Sunday! hugs, Linda

Stephanie said...

I could eat htese every day in any way. Fried is my favorite but I do avoid that.

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

Wonderful pretty squash. I like them sliced and stewed with a little onion. Grilled sounds great too.

Theresa said...

I love them fried too but we eat them mostly grilled or in the oven with garlic butter... YUMMMMMMM! Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

Linda said...

Summer squash is so good for us. I usally take a few and make them into ducks.....LOL Oscar is amazing! Such an inspiration. Enjoy your Sun day.

Danielle said...

I had to search all over the place for yellow squash yesterday....it is hard to find here in my neck of the woods for some reason and I was so craving some roasted peppers and squash...finally found some at Publix....good to have sharing neighbors!!!

On Crooked Creek said...

Bj,
Love your idea for roasted squash! We saute ours in a stick free skillet with onions and zucchini! Whenever I come to YOU, I see the kindness in your face, the kindness in your eyes, and the kindess in your smile! YOU are the living expression of God's kindness and I leave better and happier! Have a blessed week ahead, dear friend!
Fondly,
Pat
