Announcing…Squash Week!

Posted by Hallee on Jul 8, 2011 in Blog Stuff

Because I have an over-abundance of squash, I’ve been playing with all different kinds of squash recipes. I’ve dubbed next week “Squash Week!” Not quite as exciting as Shark Week, but way more practical to my readers.

Sautéed Summer Squash with Radishes

Posted by Hallee on Jun 17, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides

This recipe came about because I went to make you Sautéed Summer Squash, only my yellow squash in my kitchen I had picked the day before disappeared (and since was found, in a small piece with dog teeth marks on it – quite curious). Not willing to let that quell me, but not wanting you to be stuck with just zucchini and onion in the recipe – I decided to utilize some of the radishes fresh out of my garden. The result was simply amazing. I will definitely be adding radishes to my squash sautés from now on.

The Garden: Week 6

Posted by Hallee on Jun 16, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

I no longer have a smaller garden, a corn garden, and a main garden – everything has been merged into one big “L” shaped garden.

Three Sisters

Posted by Hallee on Jun 8, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

Three sisters is a Native American gardening technique called “intercropping”. Three plants – corn, squash, and beans – are planted together and work together. The green bean crawls up the corn stalk and uses it as a pole, nourishing the soil at its roots with nitrogen nodules in its roots, and the squash grows along the base of the corn and beans, providing ground cover to retain moisture and prevent weed growth.

The Garden: Week 4

Posted by Hallee on Jun 1, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

I know I didn’t post a garden post last week. To be honest, the garden frustrated me a little bit last week, and I just had to take a step back from it. We’d had so much rain – record breaking rainfall. Then the temperature dropped. Then it warmed up and we had even more rain.

Amazing Butternut Squash Bisque

Posted by Hallee on Mar 13, 2010 in Daniel Fast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Soups

I watched a Top Chef one season, and late in the season toward the finals or maybe in the finals, one of the contestants made a butternut squash soup that had the judges wanting to lick their bowls. It seemed odd to me that something that should be as simple as a butternut squash soup, could illicit such a response from a group of people who taste amazing food all the time. It sent me on a quest to find a recipe that good, something that would make me sad the bowl was empty when I was finished. I’ve found that recipe, and I’ve found that secret ingredient that makes it all the better. I hope this bisque is as amazing for you as it was for me.

Summer Squash Chowder

Posted by Hallee on Sep 5, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Soups

I spent the last several weeks desperately trying to come up with some ideas other than zucchini bread for all of this squash I have cropping up, and stumbled upon this recipe. It’s PHENOMENAL. Very light soup – would be a perfect first course.

I shredded, chopped, diced, seeded, sliced, mixed, froze, canned until I could do no more.
