Throwing in the towel...

I don't think I ever want to see any squash again. Oh boy................We put up over 60 (I lost count) quart sized bags of squash (and zucchini) yesterday, and I think I'll go get the mower and cut down the bushes! Don't get me wrong, I am thankful for what we've got, and thankful to have put up this amount in the freezer, but I think we have enough already? My sweet niece helped me or I'd still be cutting, blanching and bagging squash! On top of that I had to do something with some of the things in the freezer and fridge to make room for all of the squash, did I mention we have squash? LOL So anyway, I boiled parts of a turkey my son killed a few weeks ago for turkey and rice that we'll have tonight, also baked a chicken with turnip roots, potatoes, carrots and onions, smothered some "squash", and I have some yummy avocado's to make some guacamole today.
I put up:
~blanched yellow squash
~raw yellow squash
~raw zucchini
~zucchini fries (dampened and coated in flour)
~yellow squash fries (dampened and coated in flour)
~yellow and zucchini sliced dipped in buttermilk and egg, and coated with cornmeal
~shredded zucchini for zucchini bread
Inevitably, I will have more squash...I'm going to be pickling it next time...Oh, and I canned 11 jars of pickles, as well.
I'm still so tired, and so sore...Even my thumb is sore from all the cutting! But we'll have plenty of squash to get us through until the year 2015 or so...well, not quite, but close.


  1. You did mention you have squash. I love fried squash & zucchini bread.
    Looking forward to seeing all the goodies that come from all the squash :)

  2. Ooops, so I did. LOL I love it too, but so much at one time was "too" much. Now we have "corn"
