Oh, Jenny, you lucky thing!  You have some Pattypan Squashes.  I love them!
You can cook them (or not--they're good raw, too) the same way you can any
other summer squash, like zucchini or yellow crook-neck, but they're firmer
in texture.  They have a very mild flavor and never get squishy like
zucchini when cooked.  I like to saute them in a bit of vegetable boullion
or in a dry nonstick skillet or to marinate them in balsamic vinegar with a
couple of drops of liquid smoke and add them to a salad.  I'm going to raise
lots of them in my garden this year (I hope).  Enjoy!
