Summer squash was Elizabeth's first solid food. I cooked it and mashed it up with a fork and fed her with a teaspoon. She has always liked squash, and watching it grow in our garden has made her really enjoy eating it. The other day she and Silas helped me pick 4 small yellow squashes, the first from our garden this year. I fixed them our favorite way and we ate every bite. Here's how:
Saute an onion in a tablespoon of butter. Add thinly sliced squash and a can of rotel tomatoes. Add a little water if necessary, and simmer on low heat until squash is tender. Drain off any excess liquid and sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over all. Mmmmmmm, yummy!
