Crenshaw squash

I just bought a Crenshaw squash from the Amish, but I need some different ways to fix it. They told me they slice it, dip it in flour and fry it in butter. Sounds sort of like a fried green tomato way of fixing it. But I am sure there are other ways to fix it. Any one have any recipes that they have tried and care to share?

I thought a Crenshaw was a melon, not a squash.
We have always just eaten them raw as any other melon.
would be interested though with some other way to enjoy them.

There are crenshaw squash and crenshaw melons, the squash is big and white with green stripes going up and down it. I don't know what the melon one looks like and would love to know. I still haven't cooked mine; waiting for some other ways besides frying it in butter.

A cushaw looks like a pumpkin with green and white stripes. It is actually has a better taste than pumpkin.
