Zucchini and Yellow Squash
These yellow squash I grew in my garden. (I bought special seeds for this as most zucchini and squash is genetically modified nowadays. I try to stay away from GMO and I do pay more for that and think it's a good idea if you can afford it.) Squash and zucchini grow like crazy and there is always more than enough, it seems. Fortunately, these can be used for making breads, muffins, and cakes. So, I washed them off and grated them and put them into reused freezer bags (these have been washed out for reuse as you can see by the scribbled out words. It is not recommended that you reuse bags that have had meat in them. Do so at your own risk.) I just put some hot water in the bags and a squirt of soap, squeeze and rub them and rinse them out and hang upside down to dry.
Here are some recipes. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Moms-Zucchini-Bread/Detail.aspx?evt19=1
So here are two money saving tips today. Use up your yellow squash and zucchini by grating them and making baked goods and reuse your plastic bags. :)
