Over a Cup of Coffee: Geraldine’s winter squash medley

Diane Prather

This week, I was thrilled to receive an envelope of recipes from Geraldine Coleman, of Craig, a frequent contributor to this column. The recipe for Winter squash medley is intriguing. I have only just received the recipe, so I haven’t had time to try it. Fall would be a great time to bake it, when we’re harvesting our gardens, but why wait? The casserole would be great served with barbecue.

I think Speedy tuna skillet would be a great summer evening meal, served over chow mein noodles or hot rice.

Other recipes sent in by Geraldine will be featured in this column soon. Thanks, Geraldine.
