Southern Fried Squash

We have been getting a lot of Zucchini and Squash in our little suburban garden. I thought I'd share our favorite way to fix squash.

We've grilled it, sauteed it, deep fried it in a tempura batter, stir fried it, sliced and eaten it raw in salads and with veggie dip.
Now I know southern cooking had a bad rap for everything being fried, but good is good and easy is even better.
All you need is a mess of squash diced up, maybe four cups or so, you know I don't measure. Put a table spoon of bacon grease (and yes you need it for the flavor) in a skillet on medium low and sauteed the squash letting it cook down until it tender and browns. I just add salt and pepper, trust me it's delicious!
