I Got Weird Kids!!

Last night we had Spaghetti for dinner. As a side I made some yummy squash. We as usual had left-overs of all. So, this morning my 11 year old is trying to decide what to eat for breakfast, and I go down the now routine list; Cream of Wheat, Scottish Oats, Pancakes.... and he decides he wants the left-over squash. Just the squash, no spaghetti, just squash!

I LOVE squash, but it is usually not a kids favorite. While the others didn't want it for breakfast, they did enjoy it last night, and again tonite. It is pretty easy to make, and this time of year it is cheap and easy to come by.

So here's my recipe, as usual no exact measurements, these are just estimates as I just kind of throw a little of this and a lot of that when I cook.

Sauteed Squash
about 1/4-1/2 cup butter(real is best, but margarine will do!)
2-3 large zucchini
2-3 yellow squash
1 large onion
about 2 tsp seasoning salt
about 1/2- 1 tsp black pepper
about 1 tsp dried garlic granules
First melt butter in large frying style pan. Add sliced onion and saute until soft. Add sliced squash and cover with seasoning, continue to cook until all is tender. Serve and enjoy!!

I am recovering from spinal surgery and meals are being brought to us by our homeschooling community. Well, the second night we got eggplant parm...WOW!

Well, it had not been a good day for me (Not surgery related) and I could not enjoy the meal as much as I wanted to. So, the next morning, what do you think was on my plate...yeppers, eggplant.

Me and my daughter do not feel the connstraints of modern society to have to eat the normal foods considered breakfast foods. We eat what we want. My son looks at us like we have three heads, all the while, while we sit and enjoy baked ziti for breakfast.
