I was right... It was a triple score! More of the texture of a zucchini than the squash, but more of the sweet squash flavor. I sliced it about a half an inch thick, tossed it onto my hot skillet with lemon olive oil and browned it on both sides. Simple. No salt, pepper or seasonings. Pure delicious! I could think of a million ways to eat it, but this was by far the best to me. Simplicity and speed counts for something. It is huge, and I cooked quite a bit and it wasn't something I thought would be good reheated. I thought I would give the leftovers to my dogs (they eat pumpkins and other raw squash!) They devoured it! So, here I am in the dog days of summer, sharing my neighbors SQUAZINI (YES I made up that word and it would not work for Scrabble) with my sweet dogs. Oh, I didn't have another regular Shiner, but I scrounged up an old Winter Ale Shiner from the back of my fridge from last December.
Sharing a hot summer moment with good garden bounty, a beer and my devoted dogs (no they didn't get a drop of my beer - even I have my limits). Some days end better than others and this one I will remember for a long time to come.
