Let’s talk about squash! Or rather, let’s make some squash recipes!
I love squash because they are delicious, but I also love them because they are usually relatively cheap. If you know me at all, you know that I am all about that frugal living, so if any fruit or vegetable is in season and on sale, I am cooking it nonstop!
I just got a massive bunch of squash, so I needed all the squash recipes I could round up so that my family and I don’t get bored of the same food all the time. I love cooking and trying new recipes, so this was right up my alley!
So check out these delicious squash recipes and enjoy!
