Summer Squash Recipe Roundup

This summer around the Fenton household, we are getting our vegetables the old-fashioned way: through an honest-to-goodness trade. Our friend who has been away all summer has asked us to mow his lawn and water his plants and in return we get our pick of his vegetable crop. Pretty sweet deal! But this also means we have way more veggies than we know what to do with. For the veggies we didn't freeze, I found I was desperate for new ways to cook zucchini and yellow squash. If that is the story of your life this summer as well, hopefully this post will inspire some fresh new ideas for you!
