For a veggie, it's one of my favorite dishes. Sauteed squash. I modified the recipe found on Food.com and made up this:
Sauteed Squash3 large size fresh squash sliced in 1/2" thickness
1/2 can French's Fried Onions
2 tablespoons light olive oil
salt and pepper
Heat oil in frying pan. Add squash. As squash starts to get soft, add fried onions. Continue to saute with lid on top until desired softness. Salt and pepper. You can add any fresh vegetable such as zucchini, tomatoes and/or my personal favorite, mushrooms.
We'll add another side of fresh whipped mashed potatoes. For the meat it'll be another one of my concoctions, adapted from Paula Deen's meatloaf recipe, our family's favorite. It's so good, I thought why not take some of the same ingredients and use them for another dish so...
Hamburger Steaks With Gravy
1 pound ground beef
1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients well, Form into individual patties. Place in baking pan.
Mix all ingredients for gravy. Pour over patties.
Bake for 1 hour.
And no meal is complete without a little sugar. The Doc has requested cream cheese pound cake. He likes it plain but I like to top it with fruit and whipped cream. It's also good topped with any fruit salad recipe.
From who else but the butter queen Paula Deen. (Click on the link under the photo for recipe.)

Thanks to all who entered! No blogging for me today or the weekend as we'll be spring cleaning outside. I'm about to go plant before the sun gets too hot. It was 86 degrees yesterday! What will the temps be in July?
