Some of my favourites are fresh thyme, fresh flat leaf parsley, or dried
Also, for those zucchini that get too big and seedy, I stuff them and
bake them. Scoop out the seeds, and some of the flesh, shred the flesh
with some carrot and/or parsnip, mix with some dices tomato, onion and
bell pepper (and optionally some seasoned sausage meat), plus seasonings
of your choice. Top with bread crumb and olive oil, then bake in a
Sometimes in August a day's picking will yield a handful of beans, a small
pepper, a small zucchini, one tomato, and such - not enough of anything for
a meal. So I steam the mixture together with a little onion (long cooking
veggies go into the pot first, short cooking ones later) and dress with
olive oil, salt, and basil. That's good. When there are lots of zucchinis, I

I used to plant zucchinis in the spring, but discovered that it works better
for us to plant them in July. The squash borers have gone by then, and the
peas and lettuces are just finishing up and ready to give up their places in

I cut them Lengthwise and freeze them to make Zucchini Lasagna later.

Grilling them is great too, and on kabobs they are great. We also lik
them saute'ed in a Chineese stir fry too. I have grated them and froz
them to make zucchini bread before too.
You can also make homemade pizza with the ingredients you are allowe
to eat and slice a few slices of zucchini on them.
A long time ago I had a recipe where you could make fake pineapple ou

find that recipe now though
Copied from a favorite Mexican restaurant in So. Cal., El Presidente, Sliced
Calibacitas (not sure about the spelling, it's been years).
My version is:
Cover sliced rounds of Zucchini with Mexican green salsa, I like La Victoria
Microwave until tender
Cover with Monterey Jack Cheese
Microwave until melted
I have a vegetable dehydrator. Do I just cut my yellow squash into
slices and dry them or should I dip them into lemon juice first?
About how long does it take to make the chips and how do I tell when
they are done?
My cat really loves me. When it is cold at night he lies right
up against me in the bed to help keep me warm.
