Yummy Fresh Fried Squash Recipt

Here in the south we love our fried squash. All the veggies for this recipe came fresh from my garden.

You will need:
A large frying pan or skillet, I like to use my electric skillet, but I usually cook for quite a few people

6-8 fresh yellow squash
3-4 fresh zucchini squash
3 medium fresh spring onions (greens and all)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon lawry's seasoned salt (season to taste)

Slice your yellow & zucchini squash (slice anyway you want. Rounds or wedges)
Chop the spring onions (greens and all)
Let your frying pan or skillet heat up, It needs to be hot, add the olive oil
Then add all squash, onions & seasoned salt.
Cover with a lid & let them steam a little, Open carefully steam will be hot. stir & flip with a spatula until done. I like mine cooked a little brown & soft, but if you like it a little crispy just don't cook it as long.

In the 1940,s hull's pastel tinted realistic floral sprays began flooding the market; it is these for which the Hull company is best remembered. Hull's massive arrayment of art pottery shapes included vases, baskets, ewers, wall pockets, rose bowls- and the list goes on. The company reports a run on console bowls, which were offered in nearly every design. The pastels that tinted the 1940s art lines were very similar in color. tending toward the prominent blues and rose hues, along with others which included peach, almond, apricot and sweet pink, to name but a few. The matte finish lines dominated this period of art pottery production. From the late 1930's to 1940's , Hull vases in many lines appeared relatively simplistic in style. These shapes were repeated usually three and sometimes four times in a single pattern, although the pottery firm was determined that each design keep its individual identity, shapes and ideas were none the less traded from one line to another. Hull's pastel art pottery flourished for over a decade beautiful patterns such as Orchid , Tulip, Iris, Poppy, Water Lilly, Wildflower, Woodland, Magnolia, Rosella, Bow Knot, Calla Lilly and Dogwood.
