HFF Challenge #9: The Frugal Housewife

The Challenge: Frugal cooking.  Unfortunately, the dinner party I cooked over the weekend didn't quite fit the bill (budgeting was a factor, but I didn't have historical documentation); instead, it's time to play with leftovers.

The Recipe: Fried Squash from Miss Beecher's Domestic Receipt Book

Date/Year & Region: 1846, American (used the 5th edition, 1871)

How Did You Make It: Took a few pieces of boiled squash leftover from dinner, and fried in a small amount of butter.  Salt added to taste

Time to Complete: Less than 10 minutes.

Total Cost: N/A. Used leftovers only.

How Successful Was It: Tasted like squash.  It's hard to go wrong with butter and salt.

How Accurate Was It: Followed the instructions as given.
