Summer squash things

DH's cousin came for a visit on his cross-country drive, and gifted us with 5 very nice zucchini-like squash. What the heck do I do with them? I despise baking, so not too interested in zucchini-like bread.

Ha! Lasagna! I have some cottage cheese that's on the verge of expiring tomorrow.

What else?

Fritters! http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ki-recipe.html

Once they're shredded, you can freeze them for later.

Also frittata or gratin. Use some in soups and stews, rice, and pasta sauces.

Thanks, GG. These fritters interest me. I have about 5 pounds of these green squash (not something I'd normally eat.)

Thanks, K-girl! This interests me as well!

I gave my Zoodle cutter to a GF in Mexico, but I have a couple mandolins that should do the job. Just need to wear The Glove, otherwise there may be a bit of Dawg meat in the dish.

.. there's always the standby, Zucchini Boats stuffed with leftover tidbits...
cheese, carnitas, carne asada, taco meat, veggies, simple bread stuffing... well, not necessarily all of the above though

The zucchini boats I've had are from tiny zucchinis, though I adore them. These are about a pound apiece, and I'm not even sure they're zucchinis. They're green, and some type of squash. I think. They're not meat.

Think I'll give a shot with the almost expired cottage cheese, sliced squash-type things on the mandolin, and lasagna. And fritters. I no longer have one square inch to freeze anything in either freezer.

If it turns out edible, I will post a pic.
