I made fried squash today. Yellow zucchini, green zucchini, and pattypan squash.Here is the recipe I use
2 egg whites - whipped to be a little frothy with a hand whip. (Using egg whites only will make it crispier.)
Add about a cup of milk (or more for a larger batch)
using the hand whip beat in flour a little at a time until the batter is just thick enough to stick to the sliced squash, but not as thick as pancake batter.
Add some garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
Dip squash slices in batter and let some excess drip off - but don't let all the batter drip off!
Fry in hot oil, turning to cook both sides. Drain on paper towels and Dig in!
We have a new favorite soup. It is sooooo delicious! Here is the recipe:
Delicious Italian Country Soup
1 pound Mild Italian Sausage
1 large onion chopped into medium pieces
2 stalks of celery chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
5 cups of water
2 or 3 (or more) peeled potatoes chopped
1 can (14 and 1/2 ounce) can of diced tomatoes - undrained
2 tsps salt
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp pepper
1 bay leaf
2 medium (or more) zucchini chopped into medium pieces
In a large pot cook the sausage, onion, and celery until the meat is brown.
Add garlic and cook another minute.
Add the water, potatoes, tomatoes, and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat: cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in zucchini and cook until tender. Discard bay leaf before serving.
Just a note: You can also add carrots with the potatoes if you like carrots. We like it with more potatoes and zucchini than is in this recipe.
This is an excellent and healthy meal to have on a cold winter day!
I live in a small town in Arkansas with my husband. We work at the local school. I'm busy with church work and school work - I am in charge of the yearbook. I love visits from my family. One of my greatest interests is in supporting my missionary son who is serving in Brazil for the LDS church. We love to get letters and emails from him. I'm the proud grandma of two beautiful granddaughters. I have a great love for my country. I read and listen and occasionally I speak out!
