Just like Mom's

The other night, I sliced up a giant squash and an equally-giant zucchini, waiting for my chance to try making fried squash like my mom used to. Not knowing the exact recipe, I mixed together....
1/2 c flour
1/4 c cornmeal
1/4 tsp pepper
a good shake of season salt

I made a simple egg bath with 2 eggs and about 1 tbl of milk.

Dip the slices in the bath, dip them in the flour mixture, and then fry 'em in a pan with a couple of tablespoons of canola oil. They browned up pretty quickly and they sure did taste very close to mom's. But hers were better.

I'm learning....
