Yellow Squash Casserole
This recipe is great; I've fixed it many times and have passed it on to friends and family who also love it. I use more cheese (usually at least 3 cups and I like to mix cheddar with Colby jack) to taste, omit the wine, and add onion. I usually steam the squash first but if I forget I just up the temp to about 400 and leave the lid for 30 minutes. I also add a topping of breadcrumbs mixed with spicy breader (fish batter) and a dash of olive oil.(~1/4 c each. stir until all topping is moist and crumbly and sprinkle over top) I add this after I take the lid off or about 20 minutes before it is done. I've used canned squash and I've also substituted with zucchini and it was great both ways! Our family favorite!

Mushroom in the Middle Meatloaf
I don't usually like meatloaf but was requested to make it. I found this and read thru the reviews and modified as follows: I used beef because that’s what I had. I also added fresh mushrooms inside and out. I used minced garlic and mixed the seasoned bread crumbs with spicy fish batter. I spread the meat out on plastic wrap leaving the edges a little higher and spread the soup on and then the fresh mushrooms. I lifted the plastic wrap as I rolled the meat up and sealed the ends as I went to keep the soup in. I had no mess! I put it in the pan with the seam down. I cooked it in a glass covered oval because it didn’t fit in my loaf pan. When I got it out to put the soup on and more fresh mushrooms I used a syringe to suck out the grease that had drained to the bottom. I making it today with cream of celery instead.
