a good harvest....

yellow squash, green squash, zuchinni...
you name it, we got it.
...and lots of it!
a great crop this year for sure, with all this rain we've had~
So, what is a farmwife to do when she has all these vegetables?
can. freeze. bake. repeat.
here is a yummy recipe for a treat that I've had for years...
it's really good and wholesome too!

~Orange (or Lemon) Frosted Walnut Squash Bars~
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp grated fresh orange peel (or substitute lemon)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coarsley grated yellow squash (peeled)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
~ (frosting recipe to follow) ~
Grease 9 x 9 inch baking pan. preheat oven to 350*
in saucepan, melt butter. remove from heat and whick in sugar and eggs until blended.
add flour, peel, baking powder and salt.
beat until smooth, batter will be stiff but the squash will add moisture...
stir in grated squash and walnuts.
pour into pan and bake 35 mins.
cool for at least an hour...
combine 2 tbls. butter,
2 tbls orange (or lemon juice)
1 - 1/2 cups powdered sugar....
beat with a beater set on low until spreadable.
spread frosting on cooled cake, when frosting is dry, cut into bars.

a nice, ice-cold glass of buttermilk
is thee perfect accompaniment to this super-moist, sweet/tangy dessert!
Hope you enjoy!!!!

Blessed be
