Succotash tuesday

I started my day thinking it's going to be a busy one. I went to pick up peaches to can but they didn't have any more till next tuesday. So that will be my next wednsday committment. I just felt a little unmotivated so I took it easy. I made a wedding card for my sister-in-law that got married 2 months ago. YES, I KNOW!! 2 months is a little ridiculous, but I had a sick child for a lot of the time and then I lost focus and I really did want to make one instead of buying it because I knew she would appreciate it. That was my one and only check mark for today.

I also got a recipe from my sister yesterday and made it for dinner tonight. It was called pizza squash. It is so easy and believe it or not healthy. It got my kids to eat squash and not realize it.
Pizza Squash
Here's what you do; slice yellow squash or zuchini in 1/4 inch slices and set aside, then slice some fresh mushrooms and set it aside, next slice fresh tomatoes thin, and an onion and garlic thin. In a deep skillet layer your vegis overlapping your squash. then pour a decent amount of spagetti sauce over the top, 1-2 cups depending on how many squash you sliced. I did 3 8 inch yellow squash and used about 1 1/2 cups of sauce. cover and cook when it is almost done cover with mozzarella cheese. You want you finished product to be tender but not mush. I let it set covered about 5 minutes or so before serving and it was delicous.

We have been eating out on the patio the last couple of nights and grilling ground chuck or turkey and it has been so nice. I told DW that the food just tastes better when I can see the roses.

I am seriously thinking of sending Big Mister to preschool this fall. My time is running out, and I know I found a fantastic program that he would love , but his Mama is not sure she can leave him for a half a day, yet. Pray for wisdom and the the knowledge of what is best.

Have a great night, Christina

Hi, this is Heather (from church). I just wanted to let you know that I have added you to my bloglines and have enjoyed taking a peak into your fun pictures, stories and recipes. I especially have enjoyed seeing your scrapbooking pages. Mine are not nearly as creative. I am excited to learn a thing or two from you.

The pizza squash sounds great. I'm always looking for squash recipes because I love squash! I think it would be good for big mister to go to preschool. I bet he would love it.

the pizza squash looks yummy. My kids normally don't eat squash so maybe they would try this. My little girl (3 1/2) just started preschool. I wanted to keep her home one more year but I thought she was ready and I am so glad I did. She is having fun. It's something for HER and it makes her feel special. Good luck with your hard decision...it is decision that tugs at the heart.
