Fried Sqaush by the hubs

As you may have figured out by now, our zucchini & squash plants are producing more than we know what to do with! Thursday I gave away 2 zucchinis & 4 squash, then Saturday we had one of each to give away. Its insane. Don't get me wrong, I love that they produce a lot of veggies, saves me from buying it at the store, but I am starting to have problems coming up with dishes for them!

The hubs decided he wanted to make some fried squash. He recalled making this with his grandmother when he was little. Well, frying and I just don't mix. I am not good at it & don't really want to perfect it since it isn't good for you. So I sat out on the patio and read my book, while he fried away inside.

They were quite tasty. He sliced the squash, then dipped them in an egg mixture (eggs & milk) then dipped them in flour that had S&P & Cavendar's Greek Seasoning. Fry them up until golden brown.

If you have any recipes for squash or zucchini, post them here! I would love to try them out.
