Whenever I make this nowadays, it always reminds me of that trip I took that summer, and every summer after that up until I graduated. My Aunt and I would spend the whole time together just hanging out, cooking, going shopping, and traveling around her new town. I cherish those memories more than any others from my childhood. Now I get to have my nieces and nephews over during the summer time, and when I have fresh squash from the garden, you can bet I’m making this for them too!
