Simple Summer Squash Recipe

One thing about blogging that continues to amaze me is how I can ask a question and within minutes receive answers from readers.  It is such a fun reminder that there really ARE people out there reading and they actually care enough to take a moment to talk to me!  That is just so fun.  

This is exactly how I got this recipe.  I wrote a post bragging and giddy about my garden harvest, and ended it with asking you all what to do with my overgrown summer squash.  I got quite a few great ideas, but the first commenter was Megan from Just The Scraps, and her simple preparation of summer squash really appealed to me. I tried it last night and I was so happy with how it turned out!   My 3 daughters and little niece all ate it and enjoyed it. Thank you so much, Megan, for commenting and sharing how you make summer squash.

This is more of a “method” then a recipe, or a “no recipe” recipe.

 Megan’s directions from her comment:
Try cutting the squash in bite sized pieces. Melt some butter in a pan and add some minced/chopped garlic. Stir in the squash and cover, so it can steam a bit. Stir occasionally until it reaches desired tenderness.
I sliced mine pretty thin and took out most of the seeds because my squash was overgrown and the seeds were large and tough.  It only cooked for about 5 minutes once I put the lid on, and was perfectly tender.
I added salt and pepper.  Simple!

Here is another suggestion from her:

Last night I made kabobs with chicken, sausage, and chunks of zucchini, on the grill. Sprinkled it all with some salt and pepper. DELISH!
