Tonight's supper


What you see here: slices of two yellow squash. Squash that grew here in our backyard. In suburbia.

We dunked the slices in egg, then in flour and seasoning, then pan-fried them. This, Internet, is the absolute best way to have squash. The Alpha, normally not a squash fan, ate his full share of this batch. (My grandmother might've called it "a mess of squash" rather than a batch, but we might not have had enough to qualify as a "mess." It was plenty for just the two of us, though.)

Also note the wooden fork being used to turn the squash, which was carved by my father-in-law. Nifty, eh? He does spoons, too. We keep telling him to start working craft shows, but he won't do it.

We may only be on a fifth of an acre, but we're trying to live closer to what little land is available. And this evening, the results were yummy.

You are my suburban hero!
We live in a neighborhood with very tall, old trees (beautiful), and we just don't have any place that gets enough sun to grow vegetables. I wish.
