SPRING NEWSLETTER 2016

Greetings!
The rain has finally passed and we can start enjoying the spring sun and warm weather. We have so many exciting things to share with you.
First and foremost, you may have seen a bit of a face lift with our website. See our newly designed websitelaunched just this month and please tell me what you think!
In addition, we have two new client representatives that have joined our team. Kimberly Parker can assist you with all of the details for your next full service celebration. Shelby McGregor can help with your drop-off orders, menu updates and confirm delivery times. Join me in welcoming Kimberly and Shelby to the team.

I am also excited to share that we are now raising honey bees at our Riverdale, MD location. As a young boy I remember helping a family friend manage their hives. I have always wanted to do this on my own and now I can say I am. We hope to harvest honey later this year to use in our menus.
As you can see, spring has brought some exciting things to Geppetto Catering. My team and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

YELLOW SQUASH CASSEROLE
Serves 8
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil-butter mixture until softened, about 3 minutes. Add squash, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Cover skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until squash is softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer squash mixture to a large bowl. Mix raw almonds and 1/2 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese together in a bowl; stir into squash mixture. Whisk cream and eggs together in a measuring cup or small bowl; stir into squash mixture. Pour squash mixture into a 9×13-inch casserole dish; top with remaining Colby-Monterey Jack cheese and roasted almonds. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is golden brown and bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.
