Monster Squash

July 6, 2010

I go and leave my garden unattended for a couple of days and this is what I come home to:

franken squash

That trio of squash on the left is how I like to pick them—young, tender and tasty.  Those three franken-squash on the right are what I came home to after being gone for a couple of days!   Looks like I’m going to be searching for some recipes to use for these big ones!

Have any great squash recipes you’d like to share with me?

  1. Im so jealous! Isn't it amazing how fast they grow?! I have a great recipie for zucchinni cake but I think you may need two of those big boys. Do you eat the round ones? Happy gardening!

  2. I've had fabulous results by adding shredded squash to chocolate cake (a bundt recipe). It turns a boring dryish cake into a wonderfully moist one. You can also sub equally in any recipe calling for carrots.

  3. Ah yes, I have grown monster squash in the past. When the boys were younger sometimes the zucchini would get so big that they would act like they were baseball bats lol

  8. I get tired of grilling zucchini so I use it to make zucchini bread instead. Even my picky son loves it so e-mail me if you want the recipe.
