"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Surprise~Surprise~ Another Squash Recipe!

Why so many squash recipes? Well for those that have grown any squash you know that one squash plant produces up to three squash per day! No kidding! With numbers like that, this frugal farm wife can't go wrong.

Not only do we make squash for us, we also give some to a recovery house in town, as well as feeding the animals. I have two ewes and one ram that cannot get enough of the yellow squash. When they see me near the plants they bleat and bleat!

Today I made stuffed pattypan squash.

Lots of photos ahead. My daughter let me use her camera, which I do not know how to use very well so I practiced!

First start with several pattypan squash. I ended up only using 4 as it is a new recipe and you never know if it will be a hit or a miss.

Scoop out the insides.

Dice up the insides very small. I decided to add a small yellow squash to the mix...

As I am frugal I thought I would show you that nothing goes to waste here. The seeds will be reserved for next year and the rest to the chickens. One pattypan was bigger and so it had seeds. The pattypan taste best smaller as does all summer squash.

Boil the scooped out pattypan squash until almost completely soft.

Then take a can of tomato soup
salt/pepper to taste
diced up squash
a hand full of crushed bread crumbs(best if it is your homemade bread)
and a few tsp. of butter.
Take scooped pattypan out of water, fill with above mix and bake in oven at 350F for 20-30 minutes.

Here the pattypan is going into the oven.
And here is the pattypan on the table!
This is another recipe WIN! So easy to make and so delicious. I like the individual serving like a stuffed bell pepper!

They must be magic squash plants, thise that produce 3 squash per day! I would not mind having some of their seeds for next year.

All the best,

Ma- the marinated squash is tomorrow with home raised t-bone steaks!! Yay.

Glenn- magic I am not sure, but the yellow squash is sometimes up to four a day. Three of the plants ended up making a y with the plant so we have two ends that are producing. Mexican squash is only 2. I added the link thinking those that get rain may think only three?
