Carol is back!
She will be posting zucchini recipes and believe me you do not want to miss any of her tasty creations!
You will want a bunch of zucchini on your porch when you see her recipes :-)
Thanks so much Carol. The first recipe will be up on Tuesday.
Have you all heard of this "holiday"? Here's a little history:
It was established by Tom Roy, a Pennsylvania man with what sounds like a WONDERFUL sense of humor. On this day, he encourages sharing.
Due to the overzealous planting of zucchini, citizens are asked to drop off baskets of the squash on neighbors doorsteps.
Go HERE to see some of his "Suggestions" for sharing zucchini with your neighbors...what a riot!
It's summertime here in New England and that means just one thing to me. VEGETABLE GARDENING! I love every part of it, even though I don't do as well as my Dad did with his gardens. I'm sure he's looking down from heaven shaking his head every year when he watches us plant. I can hear him now..."There she goes again putting TOO MUCH STUFF in there!" With limited space, I use every bit I can. In fact, in the past few years, we've expanded the planting and have 2 separate areas of goodies growing.
The planets must be aligned right this summer because our garden is thriving, and I mean THRIVING....so much so that the photo here is pretty much what waits for me when I go out to see what's ripe for the picking.
YIKES! Zucchini's bustin' out all over! We do love it-both in savory AND sweet recipes-and boy, I've got A LOT of them. I've created over 20 zucchini bread and muffin recipes in the past few years, and have an ongoing list with flavor ideas that's being added to all the time.
Linda has graciously invited me to share a few of my favorite zucchini recipes next week. There'll be something savory that Bob and I absolutely LOVE, plus a few sweet goodies that I've created to use up some of this bounty.
I will not be going to the lengths that Tom mapped out to share zucchini-although my neighbors are probably going to be locking their doors and alarming their front steps today. Since I've been sharing zucchini with them for a few weeks, they may not want to see me sneaking onto their front porch with more. :)
See you all next week!
