Squash Recipe

I just got back from Wal-Mart.  I bought a rubber ducky for my sister Val to put in her bathroom.  Chelsea is arriving on the 20th to live with Val, and has asked for the theme of the bathroom to be duckies, lol.  I want to surprise Val tomorrow with the duck.  So tonight it was almost midnight and I was trying to think where in town I could get a rubber ducky.  I decided to call Wal-Mart.  The phone rang and rang.  A woman answered.  "This is not a joke," I said. "Do you have any rubber duckies?"  "Rubber duckies?" the woman started laughing.  "Really, this isn't a joke," I said.  "My sister is decorating her bathroom in duckies for my niece and I need to find one."  "Oh, ok," she said.  I didn't tell her my niece was 18!  She told me that they MIGHT have some duckies, and probably did.  I asked her IF they did, where would they be?  She told me in the infant's section.  I asked her where the infant's section was.  She said near the grocerys.  Getting information from this woman was like pulling teeth.  Anyway, I thanked her and hung up.  I went to Wal-Mart and found said duck and my mission was complete. 

Today was a good day.  I was much more up today.  Well at least tonight.  The morning was rough.  But then I started feeling better and started getting a lot of things done.  John and I went grocery shopping.  I did the dishes.  John and I went to Wal-Mart (yes, I went twice today) and bought the game Upwords.  I am looking forwards to playing it for the first time. 


I also made dinner.  It was squash and tomato casserole.  The reciple called for zucchini and tomato casserole but I changed it.  Because I had yellow squash on hand.  I imagine either way would taste great.  It was so easy to make.  The measurements from the recipe were not exact by an stretch of the imagination so I winged it.  I never use exact measurements anyway.  This is basically the recipe:

one and a half yellow squash or zucchini thinly sliced
one large beef steak tomato thinly sliced
one onion (if desired) thinly sliced 
a little bit of margerine or butter (love these measurements, lol)
enough bread crumbs to put on top of a round casserole
lots of mozzarella and cheddar cheese to put on top of the bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a round casserole dish (I used a glass one) layer the vegetables.  When you get to the top, dab the vegetables with butter or margerine in a few spots.  Then cover the casserole with bread crumbs.  Cover the dish and place it in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.  Then remove from oven and cover casserole with cheese.  Leave cover off casserole.  Return casserole to oven and bake an additional ten minutes.  

Very yummy for vegetable lovers!


Let's see what else is new.  John says he might have to get a root canal work done instead of just cavities.  Ouch!

Today Sam the Landlord came by and said he was sorry for spraying the spray in the window.  He said that he believed that he had gotten them all now.  He said he was using something different.  He showed me the can.  It said "Wasps Be Gone" or something.  Those things weren't bees, they were wasps!  He told me they were all gone.  Actually, I saw two of them were still there.  So they weren't ALL gone.  Several hours later I saw him back AGAIN spraying.  I hope they will be gone soon.  He did apologize though for spraying in the window and having Michael jump down on my face...

Well, gotta run, I am going to go to Mass in the morning (Saturday, which it will already be by the time you read this!) and then go over and help my sister do some things).  Nighty.   


  1. Loved reading this, I like being a small part of your life....

  2. Sounds like a really busy but fun day!  Glad the wasps are gone.  Funny about calling Walmart to see if they had rubber duckies!  I imagine they get a lot of prank calls!  So when something like this is real, they question it!  Hope you have an awesome weekend.  Hope John doesn't have to have a root canal!  

  3. I love squash but no one else here does =(

    I love word games. Scrabble is my favorite. But no one will play with me anymore cause I always win.

  9. Hey girl,

    Next time you need to know anything about Walmart... just ask me.  I have that place pretty much memorized!... nope, don't work there... just spend Lester's paycheck there each week.  I think they're planning on making me the shopper of the decade or something... there better be cake at the party!

    Anyway, Glad that Val is feeling better... can't wait to check out her entries.

    I found something we have in common... My landlord's name is Sam Too!
