So hot that I nixed my plans to walk this morning. I did some unplanned moving instead in the form of chores. Not much - but it's OK. I did intentionally move 4x this week. I met my goal.
I'm so excited- southern vegetables for dinner tonight. I typically stew my yellow squash but a couple of years ago, D prepared them the way his grandmother did. He called them fried squash and I guess in a sense they are - but don't go thinking breaded and deep fried.
Southern style (as in south Georgia style) fried squash employes a slow cooking method, bacon grease (just a table spoon for the entire mess), thinly sliced sweet onion (only a little), thinly sliced yellow squash, salt & pepper, and a cast-iron skillet.
The result is a yummy dish - the squash are slightly caramelized, sort of falling apart (not quite mush) and incredibly rich tasting. I cooked them this morning so they'll be at room temperature for dinner tonight. It's so hot here the last thing I want is a plate full of hot food!
To go with our dinner, lady peas, roasted corn, roasted okra and ham steak. I may or may not have any steak. We'll see.
