Lani from Monday Crazy Questions asked in my Thursday Thunks comments if there is such a thing as the "Patty Pan Squash" I referred to in one of the questions. My answer: "why yes - there is".
The Toad and I grew up in Southern California and this was common at the local grocer:
It could be chunked up and cooked the same way that you would cook zuchinni or yellow crookneck squash, or it could be hollowed out and stuffed which is quite pretty:
I've rarely seen it in the Houston area and have not had much luck growing summer squash in general. It has a very mild taste and goes with just about anything so if you see it at the grocer, pick some up and give it a try!
