I am so happy you dropped in to see me this morning.  Have some coffee and we will visit while I make this Squash Casserole.  We have had the most beautiful squash all summer from our garden.  This is really one of my favorite recipes...well one of the many, because I just love squash.

  2. I agree - who wouldn't love to dig into this? I love summer squash...Joe likes it grilled but I am sure he wouldn't object to this at all. He loves cheese.

  3. Hi Miz Helen. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment:) If you are in Dallas, you're probably going to be getting all this rain that's here now in Houston. I really like your site and your cottage:)

  4. Ummm....Nana....First what does it mean to blanch? Second...I have one huge yellow squash and one huge zucchini. How can I modify the recipe to only need these?

  5. Miz Tiffany, To blanch means no longer than 3 minutes. Don't over cook the squash in that process or it will be to soft. Make sure you drain it really well. If you have a huge yellow squash and a huge zucchini, I would not modify the recipe. You will have enough squash it will be fine. You will love this recipe. Let me know how it turns out.
    Love You
