The photo illustrates my latest effort. Buttery baked squash filled with fresh home-made Italian sausage and fried peppers. Sounds funky, but I think it is pretty good. I tried it out on DadGum when he was here to visit, and he ate his without ill effects or complaints. I think I'll try slicing and drying a few squash, like the red Indians of the Missouri valley did before white folks killed them off. I have no idea how they might be reconstituted for later use. Perhaps the old timers just chewed it dry, like jerky. I'll find out.
