It’s the end of July and it’s hot in Texas! The squash plants seem to be the only ones happy about this heat. They are showing off by producing lots of yellow squash!
I decided to make a loaf of squash bread…you know, like zucchini bread but with the yellow squash vs. the green ones.
The flavor was similar. This one is slightly milder than the zucchini bread.
