There are so many ways to enjoy summer squash! I used my 8 inch iron skillet to make this delicious Mexican flavored crookneck squash, a real treat along with some fresh purple hull peas. I found the recipe in an all time favorite cookbook, The Texas Experience, Friendship and Food Texas Style. I use the cookbook so often the back is coming off and the pages are loose, and I always smile when I see my friend’s handwriting inside the front cover: “To my best friend with much love, Merry Christmas 1984 Sondra.
It has been almost 30 years since we lived near each other, but I still miss her, and every time we talk, we pick back up where we left off! Thank you, Sondra. For the book, and for the friendship!
