    So since this topic will never actually be used for the sport, does anyone know any good recipes using squash? For some reason I was given a box of squash as a joke that I didn't get.

    Considering the season, you must mean summer squash, like zucchini and yellow squash.

    Try going to thekitchn.com and searching for recipes. They had a few articles on them tis summer.

    You can eat them raw in salads, make pickles, grill them, steam them, grate them and add to sauces, breads and dressings, add them to rice dishes, make quiches, scramble with eggs, etc. Because they have a lot of water in them, you don't want to boil or use too much water in prep. If you have a lot, look up ways to freeze.

    Would this work for both winter and summer squash? icon_lol.gif

    Slice into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and some kosher salt. Grill on each side about 2 minutes. Eat!

    This also works really well with asparagus.

    What type of squash did you receive? I love all methods of cooking them... Butternut Squash Soup is one of my favorites.

    I'm pretty sure they're yellow and zucchini. I know how to prepare them with butter all sliced up, but ehh.

    You can get about 10 pounds of zucchini this time of year for around a buck!

    Slice thin and use a spray oil to coat, then put in a bag with a coating mix like those sold in the baking section for coating fish, pork chops, etc (flour based, varies on the part of the country you live in), place in HOT skillet with thin coating of oil.........flip once brownn on one side.......place on paper towels to remove excess oil.......YUM.

    Now I understand why they were given to you as a joke.

    That's the first time I've heard of squash being given in lieu of cucumbers. I mean, unless your buddy grows it himself, it's an expensive joke (squash will run you upwards of $3 lb. in most supermarkets).

    To answer your question, cut them into long slices, add a little extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, then grill them for 3-5 mins. depending on size of the slice and quality of the produce.

    Squash are so much curvier and more exciting than cukes, dontcha know!

    You can also split them right down the middle lengthwise, use the point of a spoon to scoop out the seeds, stuff with bulk sausage and bake at about 375 F until the sausage is done.

    Zucchini and yellow squash make great pasta substitutes. I make it pretty regularly. Good stuff!

    I bake a spaghetti squash every week and have it on hand. Love to bulk up my omelets with spaghetti squash - or else use it a substitute for pasta.

    Do the same with little mushrooms and triangle cut and sliced length wise Gruyere cheese (comes in the round box).......the best!

    Slice them length-wise instead of in discs and marinate them a bit in Italian dressing and grill them.

    Easy and delicious.

    Zuccini and Yellow Squash

    I do this all the time... half it or split it into two and brush with olive oil salt and pepper .. throw on the grill until soft.

    Or cube it into about fingertip size chunks and toss with plenty olive oil and salt and pepper .. garlic if you like or some type of garnish (parsley)
