Squash isn't our enemy, y'all!
When Daddy and I first started dating it was a bit of a shock to my system to eat dinner at his house. Nana has always been a phenomenal cook, but for the longest time I was a fairly picky eater, I know such a shock. Green beans aren't even an option for me and I didn't go near things like squash or butter beans, much less something called a purple hull pea!?
Thankfully they wore me down and I grew to love some of their southern staples. I have especially enjoyed adding Nana's Squash Casserole recipe to my collection. In true Teresa fashion I have made some *very* slight modifications over the years. I am including a photo of Nana's recipe that is printed in the St. Francis cookbook. Nana worked at St. Francis as a pharmacist.
This is one of those dishes that isn't at all what you think it will be and is truly a crowd pleaser at the Holidays. I am so glad I tried it all those years ago and I hope one day y'all will as well!
