Squash and Broccoli Stir-Fry Recipe

Meet the Cook: The first summer that my husband and I were retired, we had an abundance of squash. I was raised on a farm and taught nothing should go to waste, so I hunted in my recipe file and found this one. I've made it often ever since. Cooking's one of my favorite ways to have fun...if I live to be 100, I am sure there will still be many recipes in my "to-do" file. We also enjoy travel - with three children and eight grandchildren scattered, it's a good thing! -Erlene Cornelius, Spring City, Tennessee

"This was a smash hit with my boyfriend. I omitted the sunflower kernels and added more lemon to the recipe. I ended up cooking the mix longer than stated, though I had a bit more squash than was called for. I highly recommend this recipe!"
