MMMM, Ang
A neighbor gave me some of these. The left overs are Dinner tonight. Next time I see him, I will enquire as they are from his Dad's farm.
By the way, I realy wanted to sneack some Zuccini in the Meatbeals, but chickend out.
ON a high note, I have to say, Ang get's to get the Cookie taster to eat healthy, when he visits with me.

Perhaps something akin to Zwiebelkuchen?

Onion cake. Now there's something I do know. I made it myself a couple of times although the kids aren't that fond of it.

And it's really not that hard to make either...What I really love to make (and eat!) is quiche, and that's something the kids do like...

Mystery zucchini - please help me identify...


Mystery solved!

I saw a bin of these squash at the farmer's market today and I asked the vendor what it was. She said it was a Crostata Romanesco Zucchini.

These zucchini make great savory baked dishes and they are fantastic thinly sliced and sauteed.

When Mom and I grew a garden We grew zucchini and yellow crook neck squash, on the squash I had to scrub them with a potato brush to get rid of the prickly little hairs, then they were sliced thinly and cooked in some tap water and then She or I added butter and pepper to them, as to the zucchini I think We did the same, except I think We omitted the pepper and the butter and instead used tomato sauce or something, but it's been so long, only the squash comes through clearly as I cooked that a lot.

@ Searcher, nice garden, that looks really good.

It sounds like you have some nice memories of gardening and cooking with your mom, Vic. My dad always had a beautiful vegetable garden and I learned a lot from watching him work in it. Every spring when I plant my vegetables I hear my father's voice in my head telling me how to plant things. Whenever my nieces and nephews come over, I try to involve them in gardening when I can. My little nephew Nicolas, age 22 months, "helped" me pick string beans last weekend.

We grew carrots, green beans, lima beans, beefsteak tomatoes and corn, My Brother also did the same on a plot of land in South Carolina years ago before He retired from the US Navy, but on a larger scale, My ancestors were mainly farmers, with some branching out into business and the US Military(My Grandpa was a Police Chief and a City Councilman and a relative by the nickname of Pearl was a Union Army 2 Star General) and that's only on My Dads side, Moms side comes from Texas and was there way before Texas was even a Republic as they'd emigrated from Kentucky at one time I was told and one relative walked from Kentucky to Texas next to a Conestoga Wagon, the type pulled by a pair of oxen...
