    Doug... Never had squash this way. I do like to flour and fry it though. This sounds great and I am looking forward to trying it this summer.

    I've found that the pictures make the dish REAL. Often I forget until the end and miss the prep. But when I do remember it can make a big difference in how a recipe comes together. I truly do enjoy taking them and then tweaking them. Thanks to all for the comments.

    This is one of my favorite ways to fix squash. It's the way my mother and grandmother made it and the bacon drippings are the key. So delicious! Thanks, Dugger - and I love your pictures. High 5! ~Vickie

    Doug... wonderful.. I also grew up on this... Have learned to cut the bacon drippings back and use part olive oil... that way I feel like I am doing good! Got my 5!

    This is what I'm talking about! Country as corn flakes. I planted squash and hope to be making tons of this. Thanks.

    This sounds so very good....Even I, a New Englander for all my life keeps a cup of bacon grease in the fridge...Everyone should, it adds so much flavor to things...Would have never thought to add it to yellow squash...Great post, thanks...:)

    This is the only way I remember eating squash growing up except for squash casserole. It is delicious and I think I'm going to make some this week now. :D

    Yeah, this is a current picture with my wife of 45 years. The other one was from 2005. (without my glasses which I need to read a newspaper)

    Ok, a couple of comments. You can substitute bacon bits (non meat) and it works ok too. Just that the old country way was to keep a cup of bacon grease in the fridge for these seasonings. We still do that. Summer squash is a delicacy that is good for so many different approaches. I've got a few more for later.
