I have chopped them and sautéed them and they are delicious with a bit of onion.
We added them to scrambled eggs. Which was similar to having cubed hash-browns. They did not get as mushy as zucchini or yellow squash does. My kids like what we call cowboy breakfast which is a mixture of scrambled eggs, cubed has browns and sausage crumbles. So they were happy for me to find a good hash-brown replacement.
I sliced the squash in half inch slices.
Mixed up some olive oil, vinegar, a bit of salt, garlic powder and basil. I dipped each slice in the mixture allowing them to soak it up a bit before flipping them.
I transfered them to a frying pan and cooked them till they were golden brown. As I completed each one I laid them on a baking dish and topped them with Spagetti Sauce, Seasoned Ground Beef and Cheese.
Finally I broiled them till the cheese melted.
My husband and I enjoyed them for lunch. They were a bit more like eggplant parmesan than pizza but certainly delicious, easy to prepare.
You could probably come up with your own topping variations.

|The new scale and the old scale disagree by about 4 pounds.|
I did get a new digital scale it says my weight today is 201 and the old scale say 195. According to both I have been loosing but I still feel compelled to use both scales which seems kind of dumb and defeats the purpose of getting a new scale. Anyway from this point on I am going to switch over to the new scale. The old scale you could lean a bit to one side and add or gain a pound or two. The new one seems to be much more accurate and less temperamental. Just like the numbers on the old scale better. Its a little frustrating to not be below 200 when the old scale says I am. Grrrrr I will make the switch.
I have not posted any recipes because I have been mostly cooking add lib. You know with the stuff that is on hand and not really following any real recipes. I did have a couple of great cooking weekends with my mom who is also following a low carb lifestyle of eating and cooking.

We have discovered that the whole family really like this pizza recipe.
I have managed to get beyond a couple days of cheating during my sons birthday and get right back on track. That is a big big change in the past it could have taken several months and in some cases a year to get back on track.
