Working in the garden this year has been difficult as I recover from replacement of my left hip. Thankfully, my wife Julie and Donna, our gal Friday, has mostly taken care of the garden they helped to plant.
While I'm not much for the work, I'm great for the eating.
Lunch today? Corn! John Seiberling Corn, the world's best corn. Corn and sliced tomatoes, what a great lunch. I have been buying corn from this old neighbor of mine since the early '50s. Picked fresh several times a day and often as not, just put your money in the can if no one is at the stand. Sometimes there is a real traffic problem of others just like me wanting to enjoy the best.
Dinner tonight? Squash. Fried yellow squash. Our first mess of the year. Sure won't be our last. Along with the squash we had some chicken and steak which we had left over from a dinner recently at the Casa Del Rio. I am so full!
I dip the sliced squash in a mixture of egg and half and half cream, salt and pepper adding a bit of Lawry's seasioning salt, roll in flower and deep fry in next to my big iron skillet. My big skillet is at the lake for fish frys. Like fish, squash must be quick fried in very hot oil, then drained on paper towels. Simple but great eating. I fried four skillets and we ate it all.

God bless you and yours.
