    Squash Boats

    Lately, my yellow squash plants have been producing in overdrive. Fried squash, grilled veggies, stir fried veggies, baked veggies and steamed veggies have been an every day occurrence in our evening meals. Sure it is healthy eating.

    I tried a new method of doing the squash, wish I had taken photos, but didn't. Stuffed squash was my next venture and I happened on a recipe and then modified it. Squash Boats!

    This is my own recipe! Take a nice fat yellow squash, trim a flat spot on opposite sides, then split it down the middle. With a sharp knife, go around the inner perimeter of the squash and make a 3/8" slit about 3/8" from the rind. Then make 3/8th inch slits through the inside of the perimeter slits, and then do some cross ways and diagonally. Then take a spoon or fork and begin hollowing the squash. When finished with both halves, sprinkle black pepper, salt and garlic powder on both halves.

    Then take a small can (4 ounces) of fire roasted diced green chilies, spoon into the hollow and shape with back of spoon about an eighth to 3/16 inch, then fill with shredded pepper jack cheese (probably any shredded cheese). Then take the remainder of the diced green chilies and make a shell over the shredded cheese. Sprinkle again with black pepper, salt and garlic powder.

    Place in oven a 350 degrees for 30 minutes. It is "Oh, so good.

    Garden report: Yellow Squash making like a sob. Zucchini is making but not a lot. Jalapenos making pretty good. Red and Green Bell peppers beginning to make, Cucumbers making pretty good now, tomatoes making a lot but not ripe just yet. Green chilies making, cantaloupe making, just not ripe yet. Sugar snap peas making but very slowly, takes a week of harvesting to steam one batch. Okra in it's two year funk, but will be nice the end of August.

    Halved and hollowed squash sounds like a good starting point for a lot of good eats. Seasoned ground beef or pork mixed with Ro-Tel tomatoes and chiles and some rice as a filler would probably be pretty great.

    A filling of ground sausage or chorizo, with sauteed onions and peppers topped with some jalapeno salsa on the grill.
