I was at my sons home in Georgia.When I got this idea for everyone to make a dish they liked and bring it to my sons house that evening for dinner. I volunteered to make my Yellow Summer Squash for the dinner that night. My son said one of his wife's friends won't eat Squash. I told him she will if she takes one taste of mine :) Well latter that day I was told they couldn't keep her out of the Squash Pot!LOL..I asked her why did she like my Squash & not anyone else's? She said no one made it taste this good!She loved it and has eaten it and used my recipe ever since!
