  1. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! Your tomato sauce looks good! I love the fact that you have so many different types of squash to choose from! In the UK the choice is Butternut Squash or Marrow, of course we have zucchini (courgettes) too but I'd love to try spaghetti squash and the yellow summer squash!

  2. Oh that summer squash quiche looks good! I'm the only one in my house who likes quiche-can I freeze a portion since I won't eat the whole thing myself? Thanks!

  3. Hi Lynn,
    You sure can freeze the quiche and it will be fine. It is really a great quiche. Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a great day!

  5. Hi Helen! This looks so good! I've never heard of trombetta squash, I'll have to look into that. Thanks you so much for sharing with us!

    We got some rain too yesterday and I thought to myself, "Someone must haver sure enough been praying". : )

    God bless Texas and God bless America, praying for Governor Perry and the country, this looks like it will be an exciting season! Hugs! ~Amelia

  6. ummm, your menu sounds so good.
    I just WISH I could come up with a full week of menus. We just seem to fly by the seat of our pants around Sweet Nothings. :)

  7. I cant wait to try your summer squash quiche, I have it on my menu for next week to. Have a great week Miz Helen!

  8. That summer squash quiche looks so good! We love to eat quiche in the summer.

  9. You have the best menus! I have always wanted to make fish tacos but I am just a little hesitant. They sound wonderful, so I just may jump in and and make your whole menu for friday. Key lime cups... yummy! Thanks for making ON THE MENU MONDAY a more delicious meme!
