Squash and Potatoes Recipe

My German grandmother taught me to cook, and she used bacon drippings in almost every recipe, even cookies! I happened upon this concoction one summer Sunday afternoon when our neighbors gave us a bumper crop of vegetables from their garden. Naturally I stared with grandmother's favorite ingredient...bacon!
