i was actually just about to post here to ask this very same question! my mom has a big garden and i just got a dozen or so squash (squashes?) from her the other day.
the only things i really know to do with yellow squash (my mom calls it summer squash, is it the same thing?) is to either stir fry it, which is what i did tonight, or to add it to soups.
i was wondering, can i use it like zucchini? to make bread and such? i was thinking of grating one of the smaller ones and adding it to cornbread batter, too. what else can be done with it?
tonight's stir fry consisted of 1 small onion chopped up, 1 medium size squash peeled and chopped, a dozen baby carrots chopped up, and 2 big cloves of garlic chopped small, all sauteed in olive oil with a bit of sea salt and pepper. it was pretty good as a side dish, even the kids ate it without grumbling much. it was kind of sweet.
