Old Fashioned Creamed Squash


In this post I’ll be sharing a recipe for Old Fashioned Creamed Squash.

I saw a post on my friend Mary Foreman’s Blog Facebook Post for this Creamed Squash. It looked so delicious and I’ve never had squash like this and decided I just had to have it!

I made it for dinner and it was as delicious as it looked. I love Mary’s recipes and have a copy of her cookbook in my collection.

Yellow squash has been one of my favorite vegetables as long as I can remember. The summer squash is delicious prepared many ways.

If you’ve ever planted squash or zucchini in your warm weather garden then you know that you’ll get a bountiful harvest. Unless the squash bug gets to the plant first. Let’s not talk about that!

These squash plants are wonderful and will give you more vegetable fruits than you might be able to eat. Sharing is always a great option.

This past summer I had wonderful results with both of my zucchini plants and my one yellow squash plant producing very well.
