Steak with Squash Medley Recipe

Steak with Squash Medley Recipe

This recipe for our traditional Sunday night dinner dates back to the 1960s, yet it's still a favorite. At that time, we operated a small inn in southern Indiana, and every week after most of the guests had departed, my wife and I would enjoy a quiet, leisurely dinner. -Jim Tusing, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
