Recipe Test #3

Tonight we tested one of Mara's (of Dangerously Subversive Atheist Penguin) submissions, "Aunt Helen's Squash Pudding." As far as I know, it is simply a big coincidence that Kathryn and Mara's submissions both came from "Aunt Helen." Maybe *I* need an Aunt Helen!

Aunt Helen's Squash Pudding (aka the most kid-friendly vegetable dish
*ever*)
Either 4 pounds fresh yellow squash, washed, sliced, steamed in
saltwater, drained, and blenderized *OR* 4 pounds frozen yellow squash
defrosted in the microwave, then squished to remove some excess water,
and blenderized
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk or orange juice
1/2 - 1 cup matzo meal or flour
1/2 stick margarine or butter
Blend ingredients together, place in greased dish, bake for 1 hour at 350.


I used fresh squash, orange juice, and flour where given the choices. I served it with pork chops and biscuits. Justin, Alexander, and I all thought it was really yummy! Alexander said, "I like squash pudding the best!" Jack, however, inexplicably spit it out! Blasphemer! I would definitely make this again! Next time, though, I will make a half recipe. This was delish, but we only ate between 1/4 and 1/3 of it, so I think this recipe is the "company's coming" size! Thanks so much, Mara! I really liked it.

Oh yeah, I probably should have warned you it made a lot :) It's pretty good cold eaten out of the refrigerator at midnight, though.

::coughs:: Um, not that I've stood in front of the refrigerator eating it or anything...

You don't need an Aunt Helen...you've got an Aunt Eileen!!!

I'm planting lots of squash plants in my garden, so in a few months I'll be begging people to take squash from me.

I have a lot of aunts! But none of them give me recipes!

I guess I should admit that it's not my Aunt Helen. Or Avi's Aunt Helen. Heck, it's not even my MIL's Aunt Helen. It's actually the aunt of one of my MIL's friends.

But we always figure she deserves to get the credit anyway.

I wonder if it's Helen Back? I've oten heard people say they'd go to Helen Back for a good recipe.

Oh, my. I probably should not have even posted that one, Dad. *groans*
