BEST Squash Casserole Ever!

Poooh, poooh! Just blowing a lil dust off the keyboard. :)
We decided to put out a small garden just in case the house doesn't sell. Ha, it's not even ready to sell, yet, but this is a happy post so movin' on to another subject...we have squash comin' out our ears. Well, okay, just have a lot of squash. (It's no wonder the English language is difficult to learn for those with a different first language.) Anyhoo, I had the ingredients to throw this together so here's a new dish to share with you wonderful peeps.  And make no mistake, the sausage in this casserole is perfectly complimented by the other ingredients.  Enjoy.

Y'all-Come-Back-Now Squash Casserole

4-5 cups yellow squash, cooked and drained
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 lb. hot breakfast sausage, crumbled and cooked (I use Tennessee Pride, of course;)
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup (homemade "canned" soups are healthier)
1 med. onion, chopped
3 tbs. butter

Fry sausage just till done; drain, and set aside. Saute onions in butter. Boil cubed squash about five minutes, drain. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a casserole dish - add a few sprinkles of water if it tries to clump. Bake 20 minutes at 350 F.

Serves ... let's see now =  2 over eaters, 4-6 regular peeps, or 8 skinny minnies.
Seriously, it's very good. We had it for supper last night with green beans and other vegetables from the garden.

Hope your summer is cooler than mine. :( It's hot in the South, Y'all. Lookin' forward to fall.)

Robert Sheffey, Mountain Evangelist

One of my all-time favorite movies is Sheffey, a biographical rendition of the life of the circuit riding preacher, Robert Sayers Sheffey from days gone by. (Click the link below to watch the trailer.)

 It was produced by Bob Jones University, and I have to say they did a good job of it. A few weeks ago we were in Virginia and had the opportunity to visit the church and grave site where he was buried. I know it's not really all that grand, but if you have seen the movie you know his life's work was indeed truly grand.

And where does one find the movie? or click here if you want to watch the trailer and buy it directly from the producer.
