Summer Squash: Mama's Sauteed Squash

There are two foods that I associate with summer:  watermelon and Mom's sauteed squash.  That squash was on the table nearly every night throughout the summer.  I can still see those squash, draped over a fork and served up next to a steak fresh from the grill.  Aaaahhh....summer!
