When I looked at my garden today, I was reminded of a book I had read as a little girl, and realized where its inspiration must have come from. Well, the book was really called "James and the Giant Peach" but I think the author must have first been inspired by the Zucchini that was about to take over his garden, and was filled with a marvelous and magical imaginative story... and then at the last changed the produce to a peach, because peaches are so much more appreciated by children.
So you work all summer through drought and grasshopper to get your garden to produce something... then at last you are beginning to see some fruit of your labor.... you have zucchini taking over the garden. It happens every year... in fact I have posted about Zucchini abundance before. But I love zucchini, it is a wonderful veggie, and it is always faithful to show up to your garden party even when everything else doesn't. You could feed a third world country with zucchini don't you think? Well, I think every year zucchini deserves a little post, so that those who are experiencing its abundance can find some ideas to use all that zucchini. I am going to share some of my favorite zucchini recipes all week... I am hoping you ladies will link up your zucchini recipes with me and share... or at least come by and help your self to my garden surplus.
