Introduction

When visiting my friend Shelly, we took a long walk to the local farmers market and bought a variety of fresh summer squash and carrots. Since I love pan frying veggies and garlic, I thought we'd give this a try. It was super yummy, possibly higher in fat than I would like but you can use less olive oil.
